Ran Into A Former Student

My family was given some “unused” tickets to the local production of The Nutcracker last night (which was fantastic btw). We sat in a section where most of the audience were families of children with cancer or in remission of cancer. I was recognized by one of the organizers and she let me know that a certain former student of mine was in attendance. I get asked fairly often how she is doing, I haven’t seen her in over a year …  but I’m ecstatic to inform you she is doing very well … looks really good. I wish I could say more, but can’t … other than to say that as inspiring as the story in the video is, if you knew more of her story you would be even more impressed by what she has overcome and how she stays so upbeat. She had a big smile and a hug for me and we talked for just a few minutes. My Holiday Cheer level was definitely raised!

Learning is messy!

  1. That’s wonderful new Brian. I remember reading your post about this student joining the class remotely and was so touched by that inclusion. I’m so pleased to hear that she is doing well. Thank you for sharing with us.

  2. I am looking forward to the days when I am able to run into some of my students and be able to see where they are in their lives. I am excited to see how their lives are going and what they have been up to. That is exciting for you to be able to see how this student is doing — to be able to catch up with her. It is great to hear how see is doing. Thank you for this touching story.
