Skirt: Joe Fresh
One of my former students came to visit me today. He wanted to share his excitement with me as he is due to graduate in 2 months. He will be the first in his family to finish high school.
I think that RDog and I in our youth took a lot for granted. It was assumed not only we'd graduate from high school but that we'd go on to some other form of learning.
It took a few years of teaching for me to realize that just making it through high school is a huge accomplishment for some people. I'm so proud of my student! I can't wait to see him walk across the stage in June.
As he was leaving my classroom, he told me I looked like Cinderella today (hence the blog title). Awwwwww . . . he might have been trying to flirt a bit but still, awwwwwwww. . .
