Irene Basham started teaching in 1947, just two years after World War II ended. And she's been teaching ever since. The 89-year-old has educated more than 3,000 students in the span of her 70-year career. She now teaches reading one-on-one to early learners. "I love to come to school," Irene says. "I look forward to it."
