Luckiest person in the world
I am a mother of twins, a grandmother of twins, a wife of 42 years and a teacher of almost 40 years. In fact, I don’t think teaching is any longer my career; it’s who I am. I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people in the world. I have the best job. I have survived two cancers so every day is a second chance for me. I have amazing children. I have amazing grandchildren. I have a husband who has supported me all the way through everything. I have students who still run across malls to say ‘hi’ and keep in touch over all the years. You never know when students come in every year what you’re getting. It’s like every one of them is a different little package and it’s my job to open that package. Basically, what you really need to do is give somebody a chance to let them know you and you know them and then the magic is there. That’s all you have to do.
