A Student Revisits Her Blog

When you teach, you often wonder how much of an impact you are really having on your students…how permanent the impressions are that you leave.

Well, last night, I got a shock when Google Reader pulled up a new post by one of the students I had the honor of teaching last year.

You might remember MartyTheSmarty.

Oh yes, this was one of my most talented writers.  Her gift for words (both oral and written) were far advanced for her age.

She had stopped blogging as soon as the school year ended, and I’ll admit that I was disappointed.  Of all the people to blog, I figured it would be her.

Of course, she is a senior this year and carrying a challenging course load.  Her goal is to become a doctor, and she has the brains and focus to do so.

Still, she was a student I’d connected with immediately, and I’d missed her.

The link above will take you to her post.  Please take a moment to visit her and, if led, leave her a comment.

I promise that you won’t regret the time you spend over there.  Her humor will leave you chuckling, and her honest self-assessment will impress you.

This girl is going places.

I don’t really know if I’ve left lasting impressions, but this young lady certainly left one on me.  A part of my heart belongs to this fine young lady, and I cannot wait to see what amazing things she accomplishes in the future.
