It’s 11:14 a.m. on Teacher’s Day and I’ve received perhaps 20 text messages, mostly from students, but also from some other teachers at AGU. All of these messages contain wishes of good luck, happiness, success, etc. (As a matter of fact, I just received a message as I was typing that last sentence: “I wish you a happy teacher’s day and more success in your life”). It’s nice to hear that coming from students, some of which I haven’t seen for six months or more.
And last night was my final performance at AGU. Lillian, Jenna, Minh and I performed “The Weight” by the band. Our first performance was on Sunday evening, and we “passed” that round and were told that we would perform it again on Monday evening. Although I’m sure that very few people understood the lyrics, and much less the symbolism of them, I hope we made an impact with our costumes and harmonies.
The last performance.
