Our thoughts are with you in this time of loss. Mr. Koetke was not only a great educator, but a wonderful human being who touched so many of our lives in profound ways. Those of us who knew him at PLD will remember him for his signature socks and Birkenstocks (even in the middle of winter!); for those groggiest of zero hours, so early I once showed up wearing mismatched shoes; for asking thought provoking questions like, "Where is Sarah's mother?"; for encouraging us all to strive. Thank you for gifting us with your time on this earth, Mr. Koetke. You will be missed.

Our sincerest condolences. We both graduated from the MSTC program in 1996 and believe that what Mr. Koetke created there was ahead of it's time for the field of education. We can only imagine that he touched and changed the lives of many people.
With sympathy and warmth,

Am so very sorry to hear of Walter's passing. I worked with Walter at BOCES in Yorktown Heights many years ago. He used to bring one of his sons in with him sometimes I remember, possibly Walter. He was a brilliant man and very likeable always trying to help us novices at the time. RIP Walter.

I had the great privilege to work with Walter in the MSTC Program which he had established. He was truly a great educator and visionary. He brought many unique and inspiring challenges to our students. He made a great difference in many lives of our students here in Lexington He made many opportunities for them that they may not have had without his training and guidance..
I send my sincere condolences to his family. He was truly a very great person.


Sincerely,
Elizabeth Kikuchi
