SOLC: Day 1

Over the course of the last three days, I have watched my daughter perform 4 times in her Middle School’s production of Grease.  During this time I have enjoyed the singing, dancing, and acting of the 150 cast members, some of which I taught during their Elementary School years.

I began to recall how shy many of them were.  Some were so shy that they cringed at the thought of being in a large auditorium for assemblies.  Now, here they were confident young men and women entertaining hundreds of friends and strangers.

Many times as teachers we don’t get to see what happens to our students once they leave our classrooms.  We don’t always have the opportunity to sit back and see that these confident performers were, in part, shaped by the time we spent with them during those earlier years.

Bravo to my confident daughter.

Bravo to the cast of Grease.

Bravo to the many teachers that guided these students up to this moment.

Bravo to the future teachers that will continue to guide them in their lives.

  1. As a mom of a perpetually shy 4 year old, this warms my heart. I go into each school year knowing that I am only granted a very short time with those particular individuals and that we need to make the most of it … But what a sweet moment to catch that glimpse of who they are growing to become, Kudos to your daughter sounds like a great moment to celebrate a lot if hard work! Happy slicing!

  2. Such a privilege, isn’t it, to watch them grow from shy children into confident young adults! Looking forward to reading more of your slices!
