Kate Stockwell Strempel’s treasured fifth-grade journal that she used in Ms. Young’s class at Condit Elementary in 1993-94. Even at just 11 years old, Kate knew her dream was to be not only a teacher, but one of the best teachers ever.
Jennifer Beck, formerly Ms. Young, was thrilled to find out she had saved this special thank-you note from one of her former Condit students, Kate Stockwell (Strempel). She was even happier to reconnect with Kate and show it to her.
After 26 years, Jennifer Young Beck and her former fifth-grade student, Kate Stockwell Strempel, enjoyed a reunion lunch. After Condit, Kate attended Trafton Academy, graduated from Bellaire High School then attended Curry College. Kate is now a kindergarten teacher at Travis Elementary. Jennifer currently teaches theology to fifth and sixth graders at Duchesne.
