Rosamond Cross, 86, the frail and courageous woman who headed the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr for 29 years, died Tuesday at her home in Waverly Heights, Gladwyne. "The Baldwin School was her main love in life," said her niece Jean Nick. "Even after she retired, she was there full time. " Today, 23 years after her retirement in 1970, her presence remains at the all-girl school. The Rosamond Cross Science Building is named in her honor, and the Rosamond Cross Endowed Teaching Chair was established in 1988 to reward outstanding teachers.

She also beat Penn Charter's accomplished Catherine Peff, who finished second in 19:39. "She had a real lead at one point," Baldwin coach Suzanne Valutas said.

Lois C. Nosich Goutman, 86, of Rosemont, who taught drama to generations of students at the Baldwin School, died Jan. 6 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital after a fall at home. For 42 years, Mrs. Goutman directed a dozen theatrical performances a year in a converted stable at the private girls' academy in Bryn Mawr. After retiring in 1993, she told an Inquirer reporter that she had preferred the small, rustic space. "Kids can get lost in a large auditorium. We didn't have modern technology, so the girls had to make do and be inventive," she said.

When Jon Weiner makes paper airplanes, it is usually to throw at his younger brother. So when his fourth-grade teacher at the Haverford School told him the class would make airplanes as part of a science project, Jon was thrilled. And he liked the idea of his class of boys getting together with about 45 fourth- grade girls at the Baldwin School. "I've had a good amount of practice making planes," Jon said. "And my brother is a good target. But to do it for science was great.

Matt Greenwood seemed to hold his breath as he stared at his robot rolling through a maze on the floor Tuesday night. The robot crossed the finish line, and the 9-year-old boy's face lit up. "It did it!" he said. "You want to keep programming?" his father, Dan, asked. "Yeah!" Matt said, grabbing the robot and rushing to a laptop that Hannah Tipperman had set up to control it. "They think they're playing with toys, but they're learning some pretty advanced concepts," said Tipperman.

Part of a messy legal dispute involving a former second-grade teacher at the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr has been resolved. Patricia Tollin, 67, reached a settlement with the private girls' school on Friday. As is common in such cases, both sides signed a confidentiality agreement and pledged not to reveal the amount or terms of the settlement. "Mrs. Tollin and the Baldwin School believe that the resolution of their dispute serves the best interests of the Baldwin community, allowing the school to devote its full attention to its mission of providing excellence in the education of girls and young women," both sides said in a statement e-mailed to Baldwin parents yesterday.

Johnny Depp's 'chick ring' The rumors are true: Johnny Depp , 50, is engaged to marry the remarkably sexy Amber Heard , who is younger and bouncier by 23 years. Depp was sporting a diamond ring Monday when he chatted with reporters in Beijing. They asked if he's engaged. He said, "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle. " To say Depp is engaged to marry is an exaggeration. Sure, he actually was wed once, from '83 to '85 to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison . But since then he's been a serial fiancé: many engagements, but no weddings.

The second-grade teacher who is suing the Baldwin School and the Gladwyne family she said caused her to lose her job is making new allegations: witness intimidation, obstruction of justice, and defamation.

" For example, the amended complaint alleges that a Baldwin trustee "offered a witness in this matter a 'scholarship' for the witness' child, in exchange for testimony favorable to the defendants.

Patsy Tollin, the second-grade teacher recently dismissed by the Baldwin School, allegedly to appease a wealthy couple, is lucky. She enjoyed a 22-year career on the Main Line before she was sent packing. There are many others who were dispatched much earlier in their careers for challenging the authority of an administrator or wealthy parent. Some were forced to find employment outside teaching, their chosen profession. How do I know? I taught at some of the area's most prestigious private schools for 15 years.
