Last semester, I wrote a recommendation letter for a former student who later told me she was admitted to Temple University. She thanked me a million times for the letter, and said reading it even made her mom cry. (I didn't know it was THAT great! I was just being honest; she was a joy of a student.)
Today I found out another former student was just accepted to St. Joseph University and Chestnut Hill College, both wonderful, small schools in the Philadelphia area.
In the midst of all the students who I see withdraw, repeat courses, struggle, scrape by, or walk away because of personal situations, it's so refreshing to celebrate the success of students who truly deserve it. I hope I had a small part in that.
