Fifteen years later, as McKeehen prepares to close the book on her education career, she shakes hands once again with Wegner, who is just beginning her career. Wegner was hired this year as a first grade teacher at Champlin Brooklyn Park Academy.
“In some ways it’s surreal, I feel like I have to pinch myself,” said Wegner of teaching in school alongside some of her favorite teachers over the years. “It’s a very unique experience; very cool and very special. Mrs. McKeehen has been a great principal for my first year. She is very supportive and involved.” (Sun Staff photo by Mindy Mateuszczyk)
