For most of us, our childhoods were abit of a blur. But there are a few moments and people who stand out. For many of us, there’s at least one teacher who made a difference in our lives, and whom we remember well. I certainly remember mine!
Anchor Lisa Wilkinson of TODAY also remembers hers: her teacher,Ms. West. Although it’d been years, perhaps decades since they’d last seenone another, Lisa decided to pay the teacher a visit.
The two women were happily reunited, and Lisa was glad to see that some things had not changed: Ms.West, unmarried and childless, has always considered her students to be her children, and kept their exercise books, including a few of Lisa’s.
That was a few months ago. Unfortunately, since then, Ms.West passed away after a brave battle with cancer. Lisa posted on Facebook about how glad she was to be able to reconnect with Ms.West and thank her for changing her life, despite her sudden departure.
