Backyard snow Feb 14... Beautiful!
I have been teaching Middle Grades English for 17 years. I went back to Western to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a Professional Writing Concentration from 1990-1995. I still have the note you wrote me. I don't have my pottery anymore but I have that note! I kept a journal of that time and it's buried underneath a load of boxes in my storage, but it's a memory I will never forget. My most cherished moments were the dance and the day we all went whitewater rafting in Tuckaseegee. You were just amazing! While I am a teacher, I promise you that I have counseled thousands of students in my career. I like to think that this was because of instructors like you who showed patience with students from all walks of life. I did not realize it at 14 that this program was for underprivileged kids but it didn't take a rocket scientist to see that we were the ones society threw away. With that in mind, I go forward and thank God daily because I didn't have to make it. Best of success to you, Brian, and again, thank you.
