for the most part, being a teacher has always been rewarding . . .
and maxine was one of those rewarding students . . . i first met maxine when she was in middle school . . . you remember those days don't you? . . . the drama . . . the teen-age angst . . . the BOYS . . . the homework . . . you want to be treated like a grown-up, yet you don't really have all the experience and strategies.
yet, there was something in the middle school wing that drew my attention to maxine . . . i love the fact that she was kind, considerate, and respectful. she always wanted to help those who needed that extra help. a good characteristic to have.
. . . fast forward . . . to senior year of high school . . .
maxine is an ambitious young lady . . . she loves science. her future plans are to go to western michigan and pursue something in the medical field . . . a pediatrician. she will be great at that position.
maxine thanks for a wonderful evening and running all around town with me . . . remember lunch soon?
remember to keep in touch . . . :)
