Good News from Former Students


Senior Member
This has been a week that has made me so proud to be a teacher - and made me feel a little bit old!

First, I received a graduation announcement from a former student. He has earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Harvard! There was a picture enclosed, and he looked so mature. I'm not sure I would have recognized him.

Then, I learned that a classmate of his has a second interview for a job with the Boy Scouts of America. He was a lifelong scout and made it all the way to Eagle, so this job is perfect for him.

Finally, I found out that a girl whom I taught in third grade (many, many years) ago just completed her PhD in Immunology!

I love hearing about the successes of my students. I love the fact that they want to tell me their news. It makes me feel so proud of my profession. :)
