I had a first-time experience tonight. Weird one, too.
We were at C, the local deli, when a waitress asked me, "Were you a student teacher for Mrs. J?"
As soon as she said, "student teacher" I knew EXACTLY who she was...well, except for her name, which really frustrated me.
She was one of my favorite students when I was interning in a 3rd grade class. Her Mom was the room mother and they lived a few blocks away from my grandparents. They were one of my favorite families!
We chatted for a few minutes and I told her that I still had the Christmas ornament she gave me and that it still hung on my tree every year.
Even though I thoroughly enjoyed this experience, I'm not sad that I'm likely not to ever experience one like it again. I am SO glad God didn't call me into full-time school teaching! THANK YOU, LORD :) I'll leave that job to gals like Jen, who is awesome at it!
I woulda stunk.
