Role Model or Friend?

D-Ray has written a post, prompted by an assignment for class (Sam would be proud), about me being an inspiration/role model for him.

Every Cool Adjective: Thomas soon became my best friend, he is as he once said “Every cool adjective you can possibly think of.”

Go read the whole post. This is why we teach.

Beyond getting to be role models, an honor that we often do not feel worthy of, we get new friends and role models too. The “teacher”/”student” relationship is not one-sided. Both parties are at times teachers and at other times students and in the best of relationships they are at all times friends.
