**on a personal note: Mrs. Kook was my favorite teacher of all the ones I had and would have.
My first day of fourth grade had to be the best first day ever!
We walked into the class room to find this tall red headed woman drawing
this humongous caricature of herself on the black board.
She wrote 'Mrs. Kook' in big flowing letters. Then, like a scene right out of a Julie Andrews movie,
she burst into song gracefully gliding across the room from desk to desk singing
"Getting to know you, getting to know all about you!" Now that was memorable!
