In Celebration of My Students

June 18, 2016


A cool morning run.  Snails on the sidewalk.  Simon and Garfunkel playing in my head:

Slow down, you move too fast.

You’ve got to make the morning last…

Life, I love you.

All is groovy.

–“The 59th Street Bridge Song”

Tonight the rain nearly poured down on the class of 2016.  Thankfully, it stopped before we had to walk onto the football field.

I didn’t get pictures of all of my students but they all have a place in my heart.  They are extraordinary ordinary human beings:  resilient, creative, empathetic, curious, and compelled to make a difference.

I love you guys.  As Garrison Keillor says at the end of every Writer’s Almanac:  “Be well, do good work., and keep in touch.”

    Such attractive young people, and – of course! – fortunate indeed to have you as a teacher Michelle.
