#100WCGU – Wk87 – Prompt: “the hairs on my arms stood up” – 107 words – “Reflection”

03 May

This was the day for which I had longed. I was now a teacher. There was a mixture of excitement and apprehension as I saw their young faces. They too wondered what was ahead.

The hairs on my arms stood up, “Good morning, class.”

Many years and many young faces have now passed. I reflect on my career on this my last day. I wondered if I’d made a difference in their young lives.

I opened a card from a former student many years grown, “You were the best teacher a very depressed and confused 11 year old could have hoped for.”

A difference had been made.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The story is my history although the comment from a former student came through Facebook. 🙂
