Klaustermeier knew her calling right away
It didn't take Mary Klaustermeier long to figure out what she wanted to do with her life.
"Whatever job it'd been, I always wanted to work with kids," she said. "They buy me happiness because I feel good when I'm with them."
Therefore, it became no surprise she entered the teaching profession.
Her career, which lasted 34 years including the last 28 in the Ellsworth School District, will come to an end next month when this school year is over.
