I was delighted yesterday to have lunch with a former student and her new husband (no kids yet)! She is currently pursuing a degree in respiratory therapy. Her husband is in the military and they are stationed in North Carolina.
She is such a sweet, candid young lady. I loved how she was never embarrassed when she needed help in class. We have kept in touch since she graduated in 2006.
I am so proud of Lori!
So nice of her to take time to visit you when she came back to town.
Student? You all look the same age! What a great chance meeting; I love those. 🙂
A lot of my students, past and present, look older than me. Without make up on, I look like a 15 year-old!
How wonderful. I love seeing a pic of you and yes, you don’t look like the teacher but more like a good friend. It’s so nice that you’ve both taken the time to keep in touch.
Lori is a real sweetheart. Over the years she would pop up at random times to say hello. We lost contact for a couple of years when she moved to Florida. However, she wrote a post about me on fb and someone told her my current teaching location and she called me!
Your students are blessed to encounter an amazing woman like you. And if I didn’t know better, I would have thought you were the student.
It’s moments like that that make teaching pay off. Good job, Teach!
