Story ‣ A Teacher’s Influence

A woman attended her 20-year high school reunion.

There she encountered her freshman year art teacher.

She told him that she decided to go to college as a result of his inspiration, and that she was an art professor now, at a large university.

At the end of the evening’s festivities, the teacher searched out his former student, shook her hand and said, 

“Thank you for saying those nice things about my teaching.

You’ve really made my day.”

“You’re welcome,” said the woman as she hugged him, 

“But let me thank you – you’ve made my life!”
