I had the very best teachers in Public School. One in particular stands out to this day. His name was Mr. Schmor, arriving as a 22 year old principal when I was in Grade six. He was brought in by the community to teach us band instruments and eventually be part of a community band. His direction and dedication had a profound effect for all. Learning to play the Trumpet and be called “ Hot-Lips” Kozak was all his doing. Because of him , I developed a love for music and gained a greater respect for life’s challenges. He made a difference.
