I received an interesting friend request on facebook yesterday.
It was from a very cute young mom.
Immediately upon seeing her name, I lit up!
It wasn't one of those, 'Now who on earth is this?' moments.
This particular request was from a
little girl young lady that I taught second grade to in 1990-91.
It was my first year of teaching
and I was learning as I went.
I was also attending graduate school
two nights a week.
It was a crazy, wonderful year.
On facebook all these years later,
she wrote this to me:
I am SO glad to see you on here!!! I think of you so often, hysterical I know!!
Just wanted you to know that you made a huge impact on my life and I have never forgotten you!!!! xoxo
I love teaching
and I love the students.
And it was a moment like yesterday,
that has me still smiling today.
