She was one of my favorite teachers. She was always very nice and even invited some of us to her home one time.

She was one of my favorite teachers back in the day, she always took the time to help. She would also listen on a personal situation or an educational question. Pam, you have my sympathy and please know you are in my thoughts.

I am so saddened that the world has lost one of the very best teachers anyone has known. Ms.Stoehr was never my official teacher, but instructed all of us who were fortunate enough to know her. She was selfless in her counsel of students at Bellaire High, encourging and giving of her time and wisdom. She truly cared for and touched so many young lives, not only those she officially taught business courses to, but the kids in the extracurricular clubs she chaired, like Future Teachers of America, among others. It was an honor to grade her papers and to be so encouraged by her. I remember telling her that I didn’t think I was smart enough to go to college. She left abruptly and when she returned from the guidance counselor’s office with my IQ score she told me I could definitely succeed. That extra effort- that encouragement was exactly what I needed to hear. She had a knack for quietly nudging you to take a risk, do a little more everyday. Ms. Stoehr believed in me and is the reason I became confident that college was my destiny. When I was in grad school, I wanted to tell her how much I valued her quiet strength and guidance and what an impact she had on my career. Truly everything a teacher should be. I know I’m one of hundreds of fortunate students she mentored and I will be forever grateful to her.
