Teachers Lunz, Klotz have a lot in common

On an early Monday morning, language arts teacher Kate Lunz leaves her house to walk her blue standard poodle, Blue.
Around the same time, choir teacher Kate Klotz leaves her house to walk her blue standard poodle, Beau.
The two Kates have noticed a few more peculiar similarities between their lives.
“We both have last names that end in ‘Z’,” Klotz said.
“We wear similar clothes,” Lunz said. “I think she is a little fancier than I am, though.”
The parallels go on and on.
“I was in choir and theater all through grade school and into college,” Lunz said. “I actually looked into teaching the arts.”
But after a few bad experiences substituting for art classes, Lunz decided to go down a different path in teaching.
“I like order,” Lunz said. “I need things to be in their place. Teaching choir seems a little chaotic to me.”
On the flip side, Klotz feels the opposite about the subject.
“I like it here in choir land,” Klotz said. “I love teaching, so if I had to teach something else, I would consider anything, even language arts, but I would probably be a pretty bad LA teacher.”
