Kowit a poetic inspiration to his students - The Sun - Campus
Kowit pondered possible job choices before returning to the U.S. An American friend in Mexico suggested that he become a teacher, because he had various art degrees, including a bachelor's degree from Brooklyn College and an M.A. from San Francisco State University.
"It was a revelation to me. I had never thought of it," said Kowit. "When the war ended, I came back to the states and began teaching and have been teaching ever since."
