I can almost bet my life that I'll never get tired of taking pictures of my handsome husband holding Da'Gorgeouses (those 3 smiles just melt my heart)!
reach and achieve their goals.
But I can tell you this, this young man was a former student of mine. Here he is, telling them to kick their feet so that they can see the fish down there, and here they are kicking their feet and looking for them.
As I've said before, I'm an overprotective mom.
When it comes to leaving my million dollar babies in the hands of others...
even though it makes my heart stop a little
EVERY time they do this...
I'm thankful & grateful to know that he was a very good student,
and I never had any problems with him in class! LOL!!
Many of the lifeguards/staff at the pool are former students of both DrillSgt. and myself, the top of the line, cream of the crop kids. It makes me smile to see them grow up and become productive young people. I never hesitate to tell them how proud I am to see them working, to see how much they have grown up and changed since I taught them in 7th grade, to ask them where they are headed and what their future goals are. That's the wonderful thing about being a teacher, you may see up to 250+ students in a year and you will never know what kind of effect you had, but when even the students you had a rough time with come up years later, smile at you, shake your hand or give you a hug---well...it makes it all worth it!
