|The Greening Hills|
I had to run some errands back over the mountain today. It felt so foreign to drive the road that I had commuted on for 14 years. While in a store buying thank you cards, I ran into two former students. Both were super warm and friendly. It was great to see them. I was able to deliver packages to William and his little sister, and to visit one of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Driggs. It seems like I made a good decision in leaving a school where I had invested so much of myself. In the end, the students are what remains. You share memories and connections with each individual. Seeing Jessica and Kyle today, made me feel reassured in thinking that I always worked hard and tried hard at Rucker.
