We are having a Festival of Trees, in which volunteers decorate small trees and then they are raffled off. So volunteers were coming in all day to pick up and drop off trees.

One woman about my age came in with a tree. She looked at me and said, “It’s because of you that I am a nurse today!”

She was the mom of one of my students and called me because she needed a high school level chemistry class and needed to brush up on her algebra so she could take the entrance exam for a nursing program. I tutored her for about 6 months, I guess. This was nearly 20 years ago. She passed the test, finished the nursing program, and has been a nurse for the past 15 years!

Sometimes it’s just nice to know that you made a difference in somebody’s life.

I love stories like this. We don't always get to see the impact we have on our students or in your case mom of a student.

What an honor, and how kind of her to come by and thank you for what you did for her! I know it made your day, your week, your month!
