I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Carla on a couple of occasions whilst supplying her with window coverings for her new home. A truly wonderful person. My sincere condolences to her family.

Mrs. Boerman was not only our teacher, she was our family.

Mrs. Boerman taught both my daughters. My ninth grader had her last year and my sixth grader had her this year. Our hearts are broken. She was the most wonderful teacher who got to really know all her students and she loved every one of them. She will never be forgotten!! ❤️

I met Carla through my sister and always loved her energy, wit, and love for children. Her impact on those kids' lives will be felt for years and years. She told it like it was!

What a loss. This one hurts. She gave, and gave, and gave. I wish someone could've given to her half as much. My sincerest heartfelt condolences.

Carla was loved by many and touched the hearts of many..... Love from the John Adams Academy community in Roseville, Ca. Many broken hearts and tears flowing for a wonderful person!!
