With great difficulty, I have attempted to determine if my story today is truly one of fun. As I refer to the definition, which indicates fun must provide mirth and/or amusement, I am still not sure. However, one event today certainly filled me with happiness.
A former, rather problematic, student stopped by my school today. It was a surprise to see this student because coming to school was not a top priority in the past. In addition, this student had seen a certain amount of concerning behavior. However, today I was more than pleasantly surprised to hear this former at-risk student had managed to enroll in a technical school. Not only enroll, but flourish in technical school. Dean's list. Perfect attendance. Serving as a representative to recruit students!
What was most pleasing was that this former student sought me out - and this was no easy feat today - to tell me all of this information. I am so proud and so happy to hear of the success.
So, was this fun? For me, yes! Not only fun, but rewarding and uplifting during a difficult week . Do you have a story to share?
