Happy Monday! I am SO happy to report house hunting went well and we are now the proud renters of a three bedroom house (not apartment, not basement, house!) on a farm! The rent is less then we were paying for our last basement, and we both immediately fell in love with it. Once we move in I will share some pictures of our WONDERFUL place!
I hope you all had a great weekend yourselves!
So, on my way home on that dreaded ferry again, I saw a man who was crazy familiar. When he waved to me it clicked: he was my grade 9 and 10 math teacher, Mr. N.
I went up to him and we chatted for almost the entire ferry ride. Seeing as he taught me over 6 years ago, I was shocked he even remembered me. I often talk about him as he was one of the best teachers I had over the years.
While we were talking I made sure to tell him that not only was he a great teacher, but he was a person who made a big impact on my life for the positive. When I was in grade 10 I transferred schools since my Eating Disorder was getting out of hand. I thought a new environment might help me so I moved in with my Dad. Mr. N was the only person other then family that I told about my ED. He was supportive, listened, and encouraged me on.
Before I had transferred schools, I had a lot of kidney infections and therefore missed a lot of school. Mr. N would go out of his way to make sure my work got to me at home so I didn’t fall behind.
Running into him was a great surprise! He is an amazing man, and he reminded me of the serious difference one person can have; I’m sure I’m not the only student he has impacted.
Who is someone who made a difference in your life?
