Organized by: M.S. 447 and Millennium Brooklyn High School

THE STORY:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we learned of the untimely death of beloved 8th grade teacher and adviser of M.S. 447, Tonia Frederick. Ms. Frederick gave so much of herself to our children, encouraging them to aspire for the best but holding them responsible for the work that was needed to accomplish their goals. It is hard to believe that she will not be with us to finish sending off the Class of 2014 to high school or to nurture future classes. Yet we have no doubt that the lessons and inspirations she imparted to our children will be carried with them for the rest of their lives.

Ms. Frederick was a single mom to three wonderful children, the oldest following in her mother’s footsteps as an educator at Millennium Brooklyn High School , her middle child of college age and the youngest in high school at the New York Harbor School. Our deepest sympathies go out to them as they grieve the loss of their mother. We cannot imagine how difficult this must be given that this should have been a joyous time for them as they celebrated the recent milestone of home ownership. Ms. Frederick and her oldest daughter just recently purchased a family home. We ask that you not only keep them in your thoughts but if your finances allow join us in donating to a mortgage fund that is being created to alleviate at least one of the hardships of the untimely death of their mom. Donations may be made to the M.S. 447 PTA and given to Ms. Castro. Thereafter, the PTA will make one donation from our school community.

Ms. Frederick will be sorely missed— by her family, colleagues, students and all the parents she helped decode the mysteries of the wandering adolescent mind. Ms. Frederick was a mother, an educator and an all-around great lady who never failed to offer help and inspire. She made her family proud and the M.S. 447 community is most definitely a better place for having been blessed with the presence of Tonia Frederick.

Ms. Frederick was so exceptionally kind, giving, and wise. I don't know how we would have made it through middle school without her. 3 years ago

Ms. Frederick will be truly missed. When my eldest was at 447, we were all going through troubled times at home and her kind words not only helped my daughter but helped me too. She worked with my daughter and pushed her so she could believe in herself and succeed in school. My daughter recently had the opportunity to come back and visit the school and the one teacher she really wanted to see was Ms. Frederick. She wanted her to be proud of her and that she was. My youngest who is a student now had her own connection with Ms. Frederick. She confided many things to her and asked for her advice on certain situations. I was very happy to know she had someone close in the school she could talk freely with. Ms. Frederick touched many individuals from the words I've read to the amount of people who present at her memorial service. What a special person and I, along with my daughters are grateful to have known her. We will miss you Ms. Frederick. 3 years ago
