like a message from above
to remind me that being a teacher really is one of the luckiest jobs in the world...
a visitor came to my classroom.
This is Brian (a student from my first Kindergarten class).
All grown up.
Graduating from high school this week.
Heading off to the University of Michigan.
And he took the time to visit me...his first teacher.
and even better than his special visit...
he asked me if he could stay a while to HELP!
Folks - there is hope for the world!
The smile he is wearing in the picture is the exact same smile
that was painted on his face the entire year in Kindergarten.
Brian is a hard working, smart, polite and always happy kid...
just a whole lot taller than the last time he spent time in my room.
I'm so grateful that Brian took the time to come back to say thank you to his first teacher.
It's important to stop to notice the reminders of how lucky we truly are to be teachers...
