On Top of His Game

An e-mail from a former student gives Mr. McNamar of The Daily Grind the gratifying sense that his work has been done:

"While reading the e-mail, the corners of my mouth moved upwards, and I chuckled outloud. She had learned to be a pioneer woman, to forge her own path, to listen to her life and what it was saying. Can I really take credit for that, who knows? What I do know is that I am extremely proud of her, that I believe she will succeed and flourish while there."

Cheers to Mr. McNamar! May all teachers recognize their success, even if it's one student at a time.
