Thank you for great teach­ers

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

Many of us have mem­o­ries of what our teach­ers did for us. We were given lessons to ad­vance our in­tel­li­gence and chal­lenge our think­ing. We had sports equip­ment to de­velop ca­ma­raderie and skill.

I write this let­ter to ac­knowl­edge what we had in the spring of 1968 at St. Jude School on Locke Street. We had mi­cro­scopes.

Miss Carla Tru­ant brought in a mi­cro­scope for each stu­dent in the Grade 8 class. I was in­tro­duced to a tiny world which to­tally cap­tured me.

It was be­cause of Miss Tru­ant’s ac­tion that I be­came a med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory tech­nol­o­gist, which I have been for 40 years now. I of­ten won­der what ca­reer I would be in if Miss Tru­ant had not brought those mi­cro­scopes into the class­room.

Thank you, Mrs. Carla Cor­rado (nee Tru­ant). I be­lieve this is your 50th an­niver­sary of teaching.
