Cohn Dereka Duncan calls dad

With Milken Educator Awards Founder Lowell Milken joining in and video cameras capturing every word, Dereka Duncan calls her father to share the news about her $25,000 Milken Award. "This means people think I'm a great teacher," she tells her dad. "Well, you are a great teacher, and I'm so proud of you!" he replies. She calls her mother next and gets a similar response: "That's so good! I'm so proud of you — but you already know that!"
