A Simple Reminder for the Week

Twenty+ years ago, I was helping coach the softball team at my high school alma mater. For the past 5 years, I have been working at that school, and one of the players who played for me then, Betsy, now has kids who are students at the school. Betsy is a teacher in an elementary school in the same school system as our high school, and on her Facebook page she posted the following message:

     "I just had a visit from a student who I taught over 7 years ago as a 2nd grader for only a few months. She told me she has often thought of our class and has wanted to visit on many occasions but hasn't had the chance. She remembers the good times we had and the high expectations I set for her...but most of all "how much I loved her." I sure did...and still do love all of my students! My lesson to learn: we never know the impact or influence we can have on another, so make every moment count!"

I'm sure many of you have stories like Betsy's. I'd love for you to share them in the comments!
