Hero, Teacher and a Scrambled Egg Sandwich

The name of my childhood hero was Virginia Hammacher.

A farm girl from rural Wisconsin, Virginia moved to the big city when she was 18, taking a job as a nanny to a wealthy family in town. Eventually, she became the head of the household staff, overseeing the maids and the new nanny. The family loved her as one of their own, and she was the very definition of devoted and loyal.
