Our colleague, dear friend, and dedicated Assistant Head of School & Head of Middle School Monica Miracky, spouse to Edmund Burke School co-founder Jean Mooskin, and mother to Enti Mooskin '13, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Thursday evening, July 23.? ? Monica touched the lives of countless students, parents, faculty, and staff during her 40 years at Burke. She was a gifted teacher, mentor, coach, educational leader, and beloved friend, whose indomitable spirit and passion, especially for her students, inspired all who knew her. ? ? Monica’s charm and wicked sense of humor made us smile, and her kindness, patience, and determination provided us all with the strength that we needed to carry on each day. ??
