We had an alumni basketball game today after school; it was great to see several of my former students! They all have matured--Larry is married with a baby; Jae and Lauren are practically living together; Darryl is doing well at school; Nesha introduced me to her boyfriend, Jordan; Shaquetta is having a great time at Central while Maleesha wants to transfer away from Central!
The best part of seeing them was all the compliments I got!! They were all so supportive; one even told me, "Ms. Harvey, you look beautiful!" Awwww. It's really really nice when someone compliments me; it makes me feel successful! And hearing it from the kids was especially nice!
