Ms. Gold was an inspirational teacher and debate team coach. I think of her often. I am a teacher myself, and when I hear myself slip into my "Queens" accent, I think about the advice Ms. Gold would give me! Now that my son is interested in acting I find myself thinking back to my acting experiences in both Ms. Gold's class and in the school production of SING. I'm really looking forward to attending this reunion!
My introduction to the world of voice and articulation was with Mrs. Gold. She successfully beat my New York-LonggggIsland accent out of me, just in time for my 4 years at Emerson College in Boston, where they continued to refine the process. Now, I amuse people in Boston who don't realize I am from NYC with a comically version of my old dialect. It would probably make Mrs. Gold shutter. Will try to make the Celebration in May and hope others from '75 will be there too.
I was so privileged to have Mrs. Gold as a teacher for 2 classes and work with her on 2 Senior Show. Guys and Dolls in 72 and the Boys From Syracuse in 73. I learned so much and had so much fun. I have been even more privileged to have her as a friend for over 40 years.
