I’ve had encounters with two former students this week that have made my heart swell with pride. They are both on an awesome path where they are constantly doing amazing things. I’m so blessed to know so many former students like this. Out of all the things that give me joy in teaching, seeing students succeed is my most favorite.
It’s like watching a work of art develop into this beautiful image or sculpture. I’m not saying I created it. We all know who created it, but I’d like to think I put a brush stroke or mold here or there to help push the creation in the right direction.
Students, of course, make their own decisions no matter what you teach them. When they make those RIGHT decisions and set goals while keeping their eye on THE ONE who truly is in control, I almost become giddy!
Also, when they come back and give me even a tiny amount of credit in helping to *raise them right*, my heart is so full.
I’m SO PROUD.
