That's because she threw the photographer out of the classroom. She was giving a test.

For Joyce: thank you for providing the links about Ms. Cox. I was glad to be able to make a memorial comment for her family. I think a lot of us wish we could have had the chance to tell her what she meant to us.

Miss Cox was my homeroom teacher.  I was able to track her down and we corresponded for many years.  After leaving Austin HS she taught at New Trier HS until her retirement.  Coincidentally, she taught with a cousin of mine.  I didn't realize that until after Miss Cox and I began a correspondence.


I was glad that I was able to tell her of how positively she impacted so many of us.  She stayed in touch with many of her former students.  Until she became more ill and unable to write, her letters were always interesting, funny and very topical.

Miss Cox told me not to stay with that "little Moline boy". He was in her class the year before me and she didn't like him. She really liked me so gave me this advice.  David and I will be married 48 years in December.  Sorry Miss Cox you were wrong.
