Teacher meets with former students!

by Thomas
(Orlando, FL.)

My wife taught kindergarten for 25 years. I had an idea and it worked perfectly. With the help of other teachers I was able to obtain the names of most of her students. I invited all of them (and their parents if minors) along with other teachers and our family members. I also invited the children of the older students.
The party was on a Saturday morning. I asked one representative from each class to speak. It was an amazing and nostalgic gathering.
I was amazed at the stories they told and how my wife affected the lives of so many.
We used the school gymnasium and the regular cooking staff prepared typical school food. That also was nostalgic for many.
Over 200 people attended.

I recently retired from 37 years of teaching and I would have loved seeing former students. Great idea and very thoughtful.
