Good teachers have a lasting effect on our lives, and it’s always a pleasure to get reacquainted.

Such was the case one enchanting evening in the Sixties when Baytown Sun co-worker Martha Reed invited me to join her and two others at a Van Cliburn piano concert in the Music Hall. The two others were Sun co-worker Glena Pfennig and Lillian Spear, my former music teacher at San Jacinto Elementary School. Every day at work I could chat with Martha and Glena, but I hadn’t seen Mrs. Spear since – well – the fourth grade.
