Mrs Kotelko, as we addressed her, was my grade one teacher at Glenwood Elementary School in Burnaby in 1956. I remember her so well as that wonderful educator who started me off on a lifelong venture of pursuing knowledge and education. It's only in the last few years that the media brought to my attention her tremendous positive spirit and physical vitality. You have lived a fruitful and generous life, and been a dynamic influence over people of all ages, in so many ways. Thank you.
