Default Random phone call O/T

I looked at the caller ID and it said Budget Suites. I almost didn't answer, but I did. "Mrs. Sanders?" (not my name, it's Sandefer, but close.) "Who are you calling for?" "Miss Robinson? It's Brandon." (my maiden name) "WHAT?" Brandon was a student in my first third grade class in Texas in 1999 - 2000. He got in a fight the first day in my class and I didn't leave him alone after that. I used to work in a low income school and I did a lot of parenting back then. Anyway, he's in 7th grade, for the second time because he couldn't afford summer school and my guess is they're living in the hotel. I had given him my number when he went to middle school and told him to call me at some point if he ever needed me. After all his moves, he still has my number!! We talked for about 1/2 an hour and I got caught up. We used to go to McDonalds if his grades were good enough. We're going back to Mickey D's Nov. 22nd. I can't wait.

Anyway, it made my year!!!. If you can, thank a teacher for what they did for you! You'll never know how much it means to them...

Anyway, just wanted to share some good news for a change!

I am of the opinion that Teachers are the most important people in the world. You should be getting the check that those darn pro-athletes get.
 
Anywhoo... Thanks for making a difference in a child's life.
