A Teacher Remembers Reggie White

By Claudia Heath

Salt Lake City, UT – The death last week of NFL defensive end Reggie White - one of the great players in NFL history - hit Salt Lake City teacher Claudia Heath hard. But it also gave her the chance to tell her students about the man once called "a gentle warrior," as well as a chance to tell them that even in schools like theirs, it's possible to be a hero.

Claudia Heath teaches 7th grade at Glendale Middle School in Salt Lake City.
