Our annual holiday show was today. This was the first one I attended without Suit present and that was a wonderful surprise. (Suit Lover, I know not seeing your hero would have depressed you greatly.) The real treat was seeing my wonderful students in roles so different than the ones I see them in daily. My quiet calculus students were playing guitars with the guitar class and key boards with the jazz club. My hyper active algebra student was strutting her stuff with the dance class and my geometry hating girl from last year was singing her heart out with the chorus.
There is so much more to kids than we, as teachers get to see every day. I'm glad I got to see them shine.
