In our school district the graduating seniors that are in the top 5% get to select a teacher that made an impact on them, a Dazzling Diamond. Tonight there will be an awards ceremony to honor the students and teachers and I am honored to have been chosen from one of my former students.
This student and I have a lot of simliar personality traits but she is so much more accomplished and confident than I was at that age. Or at this age. Frankly I'm just hoping I don't trip and fall while walking across the stage.
