I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and the reason is that I am an old high school teacher. I taught for thirty-three years before retiring in 2006. I returned to teach in a friend’s place for three months in 2008 after being required not to teach for one year after retirement. Also, in 2008, I returned to teaching a two hour class for Upward Bound students and got a part time job teaching homebound students, helping them keep up with their school work while they were recovering from illness. Now, it is 2018, and I am seventy years old and still teaching part time. Like the professor in this story, I have fond memories of my students, most of whom made the job of trying to educate them in some way a very rewarding experience. Of course, it was not an easy job, and there were good times and bad times, but unlike the professor in this story, when I finally have to let it go for good, it will not be with the feeling of not having accomplished anything. It’s a wonderful story, especially for an old school teacher who has a wealth of memories of many of those whom I have had the opportunity to share not only my knowledge of authors, stories, and poems (like the professor), but also my ideas, my values, and my beliefs, something that I am reminded of continually by them when we meet here, there, and everywhere as time continues to go by.
