Leaving Your Mark

Today my parents and students honored me with an amazing end of the year gift. For the past week they collected enough money for me to purchase a new pair of running shoes. I was absolutely blown away!!! Along with the shoes, they gave me new socks, the most heartfelt cards ever, and it was all wrapped up in a shoebox with a shoestring as a bow.

My most favorite part of the gift was the card that was presented to me first. The quote on the front reads... "If I pass through life without leaving a mark, for what did I live?"

I will forever remember that quote as I teach and as I run, but not because of the mark I will leave, but because of the mark my students leave on me and will leave on the world. What a great last day of school it was.
