Many of us remember our first teachers—and though they’ve likely had thousands of students throughout their teaching career, they often remember us, too.
One day, while watching the Minneapolis news on KARE-TV, retired kindergarten teacher Lorly Schik recognized one of the reporters as her student from 30 years ago.
After writing Cory Hepola a letter and sending it to his parents, the reporter set up a meeting, and brought flowers to her home. After an initial hug, the pair eagerly sat down to open up a box full of memories.
That box included a note, in the shape of a heart, from Hepola’s mother on his last day of school.
The rest, as they say, is history.
(WATCH it unfold in the KARE video, below).
