I Am Thankful For.....Kelsey


Today I had lunch with one of my former students, Kelsey P. I was so happy to hear from her when she found me on facebook. I taught her when she was in 6th grade and then again in 7th grade. She is now 21 (almost 22!!) and will complete her student teaching this year. She is a lovely young lady and I'm so proud of her. I loved hearing about all her plans as a teacher and I know the students she will teach now as a student teacher, and later when she has her own class, are going to be so blessed having her as their teacher. Seeing former students and having the opportunity to find out the type of person they have become is one of the BEST things about being a teacher!!

Today I'm thankful for.....

1. a sermon that makes me push myself to have a better relationship with God and be a better person
2. visiting with Kelsey
3. half-off book store ( made $15 on books I sold)
4. garbage disposals--I know that's weird but as I washed the dishes tonight I thought about those times we didn't have one!! :)
5. facebook, so I can be reconnected with former students


You have obviously made a significant impact in the lives of many students! That is so awesome! AND, I totally understand your thankfulness for a garbage disposal. It is a MUST have in my mind! My husband keeps suggesting that perhaps it's hard on the pipes to which I reply, "Well then, we'll have to move to a house with better pipes!" :-) Great picture! And, if you'd ever like to be Facebook friends, look me up. I think we have a lot in common.

That must have beenvery special to see her again, and to think how you probably played a big part in her decision to become a teacher.
