Like riding a bike

I was back in the classroom tonight.  It felt wonderful.

When I worked with traditional college students, I often felt so hopeful for them - for what was to come.  The difference with adult ESL/ESOL students is that I still feel the hope for them, but I am also in awe of what many of them have overcome.

It was fantastic to see their faces light up when I talked about all the educational opportunities still to come for them.

as I mentioned before and will say it again: these students are very lucky ones to have you. You are such a warm and caring person and helping them is your call.
