Voices From The Past

One of the biggest thrills that comes from teaching high school is when a former student calls or comes back to tell me about what they’re doing. Of course, my wife, the music teacher, receives far more of those visits and messages than I do as a math teacher but that makes it even more special. Jay Mathews isn’t a teacher but his online column this week is about a student he profiled in an article a few years back and who contacted Jay to let him know how his life has gone since. It’s a great story – well worth your time!
