Going Back in Time

    I went back in time…. I had an interesting day this week. I went back in time–about twelve years.   Their face morphed into view.   I attended a retirement party for a former colleague at the school where we both taught. There were former students wishing Bob–the soon-to-be-retired–well. They were also my students. At that time, they were elementary age. Now they are adults–some I’d...
