For more than five decades, Professor Emeritus Charles Krohn has nourished the soul of his students, teaching the classics at the University of St. Thomas in Houston — and he wasn’t about to let the coronavirus get in the way.
“They couldn’t run me off, so I just stayed around when the pandemic hit,” said Krohn.

He currently teaches five days a week and often relies on his theater background to engage his students.
“It makes for more communication because you’re aware of the audience, as I’ve now made, and in a way more aware of the students in this online contact,” said
