Do you know the classic story by Robert Munsch? Love You Forever is a tale of unconditional and eternal love between a mother and son, but this morning I'm pondering the connections I have with students. Most students continue to give me hugs, high fives, and warm smiles for as long as they are students at our school. After they move out of our school and into the older grades, a surprising number come back to collect a hug or have a brief visit. When I encounter former students, now all grown up, in the community or at social events, I love to hear about what they are doing and they seemed touched that I care. I really DO care!
