Have you ever had part of your life come full circle?
For many, it happens with the birth of a child or grandchild and the feeling that your life has completed a full circle. For Tom and I, that actual event has not happened yet .... yet.
As a teacher, an ART TEACHER .... it has happened when I find out that a former student of mine has become a teacher .... and not just any teacher but an ART TEACHER.
There are several former students that I am still in touch with (not as often as I would like). Kim, Scott, Carollee, Amy, Emily, Tara, Lorel to name a few off the top of my ol' brain.
Today, one of my student/ART TEACHER returned for a refresher course in WATERCOLOR BASICS.
We were able to catch up a bit about what she is doing while we painted. She will have been a teacher for 11 years .... goodness!
As she was talking about teaching she said there are many times she hears herself telling the students things that I told her years ago. I had to think about that for a few seconds but it sank in that this is a great compliment ...
She plans to return when she is in town again. Watercolor is not her favorite painting medium but she did fine during the lesson. I am anxious to see what she works on be between now and then.
When we said good by, she still called me by my teacher name ... some things never change.
