I am truly blessed to work with young people. As often as they drive me crazy I also see and work with students who inspire me. I had a chance to reconnect with a former student today and it was remarkable to sit and watch her as an adult and professional in her career. She was poised, articulate, genuine and an all around wonderful human being. It gives me hope and excitement that Ocoee can grow up to be one of these amazing young persons that are truly the future.
It also lets me know that my career path is fulfilling because in teaching at this time of year we are pretty emotionally and physically wrought.
