This week I was fortunate to be at the senior award ceremony and I watched my kids, one after one, receive award after award. It was wonderful. Before leaving, a former student, a boy accepted at Cornell, Columbia, Yale, U Penn and Princeton (he's going to Princeton) told me I was an inspiring teacher, one of the few that got him to where he is today.
This week, I got my award and my recognition. I got it from someone who matters.
