Today a student came to me and said "Happy Anniversary!" She explained more after she saw my confusion. "It is March 28th. Happy 1 year anniversary. One year ago today was my first day in your class!" I pretty much turned to mush right then and there and demanded a hug. She then went further with a little humor in her voice this time, "Yeah, it was the best day of my life."
It is moments like this, folks... <3
