At 12:34 today, I was talking to three former students who stopped by on their winter breaks from college. I haven't felt great about the job I've done in the classroom this semester, but their visit was a reminder that the non-academic part of this job is an important one, too. I'm grateful to have had a little part in the lives of so many young people. And I'm thankful for the ones who make a point of keeping up the connections we began in the classroom.
