Ladue's Kauffman among teacher honorees


ST. LOUIS -- Hank Kauffman taught math at Ladue (Mo.) High School for 52 years; now he will represent the hometown Cardinals at the All-Star Game next Tuesday at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Kauffman was announced Tuesday as one of 30 winners of the Target Presents PEOPLE All-Star Teachers campaign, which celebrates current and retired educators who have had an impact on the lives of their students and communities.

Kauffman, who started teaching math at Ladue High School in 1961, has earned an outstanding teaching award from the University of Chicago and is listed in "Who's Who Among America's Teachers."

All 30 winners, one representing each club, will be included in the All-Star Week activities and will be recognized during a ceremony prior to Tuesday's game.
