News Anchor Reunites With His Kindergarten Teacher After 30 Years, In The Cutest Way Possible!

Most of us don't have vivid memories of our early childhood, especially the kindergarten grades, but we can be pretty sure about the fact that they hold some really special memories in our hearts. The toys, the friends, and most important, the loving teacher who would take care of us like her own children.

Our kindergarten teachers have had an important impact on our lives, however, young we were to understand the worldly ways. The angels they are, still remembering some of our tiniest of habits and tantrums even if their former students are grown up enough to send their own kids to school! 

God bless the kindergarten teachers!

Little Hepola was an adorable kid with the dark hair and blue eyes. His family was very attentive towards his studies, and the grade that stays most memorable for both Cory and his family is his kindergarten.

It was all because of his special teacher, Mrs. Schik.

She wrote a letter to her popular  student's parents.

She wrote:

"Hi, Diane & Terry. It is a great deal of pride that I am now watching my former Kindergarten student telecast the news on KARE 11. I can still picture him as a small dark haired child in his K-desk! I am also wondering if you can view that station in Perham??

"In September 20, 2013 I moved to an Independent Senior Living Complex in St. Paul. It was a very difficult decision, a part of my heart will always be in Perham. My children and grand (& great) children are all in the Twin Cities. The time had come!

"Greet Cory. Tell him his K-teacher is now 90 years old, enjoys seeing his newscast, and wishes him (and you, too) the VERY BEST!

-Mrs. Schik."

Cory couldn't stop himself from meeting his favorite teacher of all times!

"I tried to hold it in, but I cried when I read it. My mom is the very best person in the world, and her kind words meant a lot to Mrs. Schik. I'm thankful to have people like this in my life," said Cory.

The letter read:

"Connecting with Mrs Schik brought back happy memories of Cory as a little boy who loved dinosaurs, the Minnesota Vikings and suspenders on his pants ... We love that she reached out to us. We love that Cory took the time to reply back to her with his handwritten note to see if they could connect. And, we love that through this story of teachers and students, we realise the importance of taking a village to raise a child."
