One of my former students is studying education. She called our house Tuesday night and had that panicked tone in her voice. She needed to interview someone in education. The teacher she asked hadn't responded and her paper was due Thursday! Could she beg a favor?

Who said I'm not a sucker?! "Send me the questions and I'll type up a response and send them back to you. Soon." I could hear the relief in her voice.

You've got to love a student who thinks you can remember your student teaching experience 33 years ago or even the struggles at your first job. (I have trouble remembering my zip code!) Bless her heart.

I spent a good hour responding to her questions and fired them back to her so she'd have at least 24 hours to finish her paper.

So now I am behind on blog reading! Darn it.

Searching my memory is taking longer and longer these days!

I absolutely hat having to do interviews! Luckily, I was able to do all mine by email, so I didn't actually have to talk to anyone!
