I just saw a Facebook post from one of my favorite high school teachers. He was referencing a new tent his wife bought for their young son, lamenting how it was overtaking his living room.
- I can relate. Our house is a veritable Carnivale de Toddler.
- His personality hasn’t changed one bit throughout the years.
But I also noticed something else when I was on his page. Names. Lots of names. Names I recognized. Names of old classmates, to be exact. All commenting on an old teacher’s Facebook page, some 15 years after most of us had graduated.
Why is this? Why would old students take the time to catch up with an old teacher and stay connected with him throughout the years? I think it’s for three simple reasons.
