Dress: Bob Mackie from Winners
Purse: Danier Leather
Shoes: The Bay
It's one of my favorite parts of being a high school teacher; prom! The kids are dressed up and looking spiffy. They are filled with so much excitement and hope for what is to come.
It's also an excuse for me and my good teacher friend, J, to dress up! I also sneak a few "raise the roof" moves in the corner. My dancing skills are pretty lame but I still like to boogie.
The best part of the night involved a student I taught in grade 8 and 9. In his grade 12 year, he is in my homeroom. We didn't think he was going to graduate but I was able to confirm this morning that he is. I couldn't hold in the good news when I saw. His reaction was priceless. He gave me a huge hug, told me he loved me (lol) and ran screaming across the parking lot to pick up his mom off the ground and twirl her around.
It was one of those moments I will file away to think of when times are tough and I forget why I entered this profession.
