Last night I had the pleasure of reading names at graduation. Before the ceremony I had fun hanging out with students. I never miss graduation because, except for a wedding, it is about the most life-affirming event one can attend — full of hope for the future in ways that few things are in life.
A student sent me this via email with the following message: “Here is the collage I made of you for IB Art. Thank you for being my muse.” This is the sort of thing teachers live for.
It was quite a surprise to see that the graduating senior class voted me as one of their two favorite teachers. I never buy a copy of the yearbook, but it’s always great to have one’s picture in it.
There was also a short write-up about me and my newfound artistic endeavor.
