This Story About A Teacher And Her Kindergarten Student Will Leave You Speechless!

Cory Hepola really loved his teacher from the kindergarten. “My teacher was Mrs. Schik. She was the best!” Corry remembers about his teacher, Lorly Schik. A year after teaching Cory, she retired, and after that Cory never saw her around the school. Later he became a TV newscaster for KARE 11 in Minnesota.

At the age of 90, Mrs. Schik was watching the news when she found out that the young man in the base left corner of the photo of her kindergarten class was the same individual on TV. “When I saw him for the first time, I could almost believe it … I remember him as a little dark – haired, charming child.” She chose to write his parents a letter, saying this:

Hi Diane & Terry. It is with a great deal of pride that I am now watching my former Kindergarten student telecast the news on KARE 11. I can still picture him as a small dark haired child in his K-desk! I am also wondering if you can view that station in Perham?

In September 20, 2013 I moved to an Independent Senior Living Complex in St. Paul. It was a very difficult decision, a part of my heart will always be in Perham. My children and grand (& great) children are all in the Twin Cities. The time had come!

Greet Cory. Tell him his K-teacher is now 90 years old, enjoys seeing his newscast, and wishes him (and you, too) the VERY BEST!

-Mrs. Schik.

Cory said he had to see her again after seeing the letter written to his parents, and he tracked her down. They embrace when they finally see each other. Cory says elatedly, “Oh my gosh, it’s good to see you!” And Mrs. Schik responds by saying, “It’s good to see you, oh gosh!”

He brought her flowers and they remembered about that year together. Cory shared the later that she wrote to him on June 4, 1988, and she says that it’s unbelievable that he still has the letter.

When she was asked about what she enjoyed the most about teaching kindergarten children, she answered: “Because of their enthusiasm and the fact they made me feel loved and a love them.”

Then Mrs. Schik shares a note with Cory that his mother wrote to her. He reads the note aloud and gets surprised.
