One of the classes at my placement school is reading my favorite book and I got to lead discussion on Friday. This week, I'll teach about it a little more, and I want to get them writing about this line. I've shared it a few times, but it's one I've had memorized for nine years because I love it that much.
I can't read it without remembering my incredible teacher from sophomore honors English, who lived these words in the face of cancer and even though we lost her, we never forgot. I'm not sure I'll tell my students about that part of the story yet. It's been almost nine years, though, so perhaps it's time to tell?
