I have a story that I'm still trying to wrap my mind around. I live in the town where I teach, but I'm not a native, so don't know backgrounds and relationships of my students. 7 or 8 years ago I had a student who marched to the beat of her own drum. She was so cool she didn't fit in with the middle school cliques and spent a lot of time in my room when I had my prep. We talked a lot and I helped her know that she was fine just the way she was. Fast forward 3 years. She dropped out of school to have a baby and then was killed in a car accident along with her mom. Her 6-month old son was also in the car in a baby seat and survived. Her father was raising the child. At the time, I really hoped that there was some way I could connect with the boy and let him know how special his mom was. Yesterday we had a big snow storm and my neighbor across the way once again used his snow-blower to clear my long driveway. Later in the day I was visiting with my elderly neighbor to make sure she was ok and was telling her about how nice the other neighbor was, and she told me he is the father of that student raising the boy, who is now 4. Did you just get goosebumps? I sure did! I've met the boy a couple of times, but thought he was just visiting. How amazing that I was so drawn to this house. I have a video I did for grad school about my middle school with a lot of footage of that student on it. Is there a way to transfer video to DVD?
