Louis Kokonis - Sixty Years: Chalkboards to Smartboards

“Six decades ago Louis Kokonis began his career as a teacher with ACPS. Now, at 86 years of age, more than twice the age of his fellow teachers, he’s still going strong with no plan to retire anytime soon.
When Kokonis started teaching, The Champ’s “Tequila,” Domenico Modugno’s “Volare,” and Sheb Wooley’s “The Purple People Eater” topped the music charts. He recalls the early days: boys with crew cuts and girls whose skirts had to hit below their knees. Kids flocked to the Hot Shoppes on North Washington Street for burgers and fountain drinks, hung out at the roller rink on Madison and N. St. Asaph, or spent evenings at Tops Drive-In maybe sitting in a winged, turquoise Ford Fairlane.”
