  9. I had Mrs. Klein as my third grade teacher 25 years ago. She was one of my favorite teachers and always remembered my name years after. She was one of a kind that truly cared. I will always remember during a teacher conference she told my mom in her years she had a ton of “chatty Kathy’s” but i was the first “chatty Charlie”. My thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of loss, you will be greatly missed.
