When asked who my favorite teacher was, I always say Miss Kohn. She was my fourth grade teacher in Appleton, Minnesota.
The funny thing is, I don’t remember any particular stories about a lightning bolt learning moment. I just knew that Miss Kohn loved me, so I loved going to school and working hard in her classroom.
I am now 58 years old, and I still think about Miss Kohn. She was young when I was her student; I imagine by now she has retired after a full and rewarding career as a fine teacher. I hope that is the case.
