I can’t even with this session! This high school senior was in my kindergarten class my second year of teaching. He was so shy and polite but I also remember him being funny. I loved his family, especially his mom. From the first time I met them I could tell that they were going to be very involved in his classroom. That’s always a great thing! I haven’t seen this young man since I quit teaching in the spring of 2008. He has grown into such a wonderful man. He went on a church mission trip this summer to help those in need and to spread the word of God. That takes so much strength, courage and love. I know he will go on to do great things in this world! It’s still so surreal that I took one of my former kindergarten students senior photos. I feel so blessed.
I’m so glad his mom hung onto the memory book I made him so we could compare photos from 12 years ago.
