Remembering Mr. Cora


Spiro Cora

This morning I learned that Spiro Cora, a beloved teacher at my high school, passed away from bladder cancer. He inspired many in the classroom, and it always amazed me that he knew me by name so many years after I graduated – and I wasn't the only one. His impact on all of his students was deep and meaningful.His daughter, Cat Cora, filmed this Stand Up to Cancer video in honor of her dad, and I wanted to share it with you.I'll be thinking of Mr. Cora and his family today. I spent some time this morning reading comments and stories other former students had posted about him, remembering what a great teacher he was. He always had a smile on his face and had such a wonderful attitude about everything, I can't help but try to do the same.
