I Needed to Remember


She was as articulate 

and effervescent

as I recall.

via

While she gushed with

teenage accolades 

 her companion

silently reminisced

via
about the

spArkLING moments

they had spent in my 

fourth grade French class.


via


What I heard Annie saying

with her voice

resonated louder

in

Marie's 

moist red eyes.

And then I knew.

I knew that

I needed to remember 

what I had

meant to 

them as children

unknown source

and how that experience has 

affected their young 

womanhood.

via

For just one hour later

I would learn

that this year

some HIGH

parental expectations

had not been met.


via

Thus is the life 

of a teacher. 

I Needed To Remember

because the

Sparkling Moments 


via

as well as 

our misjudgements


are part of learning

who we were

who we are 

and who we are 

expected to be.
