A schoolteacher devoted 45 years to helping students with disabilities. Now she’s leaving them $1 million

From CNN authored by Madeleine Thompson and Kwegybira Croffie:

“Genevieve Via Cava loved teaching and loved her students. Now, seven years after her death, they are learning just how much.

The teacher in Dumont, New Jersey, devoted 45 years of her life to helping students with learning disabilities. After her retirement in 1990, Via Cava continued to visit the school district for which she worked, checking in on classes and sometimes stopping by the superintendent’s office.
Via Cava died in 2011. And this April, the Dumont Public Schools received something they never expected: a check from her estate for $1 million.
