I have started bumping into students in public. I saw one at the state fair last week. I saw another one at the supermarket tonight. It’s the weirdest thing to be minding my own business, trying to be a normal person, and to suddenly hear my last name get called out while some beaming kid runs toward me. It’s funny how enthusiastic they are to see me when we’re not in school. It makes me feel old and teacher-y.
