Massachusetts Governor Praises 6th Grade CPS Teacher

"Patrick began his remarks by recalling the teachers who

took a personal interest in him, including a sixth-grade

teacher in the Chicago public schools who reached out to

children from "broken circumstances." "She taught us to count to 20 in German, she took us

to the first opera I'd ever seen," Patrick said,

adding that she and others "made it possible for a kid

from the south side of Chicago to become a citizen of the

world." (Governor meets with educators). Great story. Anyone know where Deval Patrick went, and who taught him in 6th grade?
