You Never Know

I had dinner tonight with a group of friends. We all have been teachers in my district, though several are retired now. We worked in different schools. We first started getting together for coffee after school years ago to share teaching ideas and talk about school. Through the years it has become more of a social get together, and we meet for coffee one month and dinner the next.We do still talk about school, but there is more talk about grandchildren than students now. Tonight the conversation took a different turn. One in our group shared a very personal struggle. And I was reminded how we just never know what others may be dealing with. We really need each other as friends to listen and care.

    I meet with two different groups of retired teachers once a month for lunch. It is nice to get together and get caught up on what is happening and also to be there for each other when needed.

    Friends are the best. Good for you to make that an important part of your monthly schedule! We learn a lot from our friends!

  4. So glad you have each other. I used to meet with reading teachers from other schools and I was so wrapped up in the angst of teaching that it was all I wanted to talk about. We don’t meet much anymore. I wish we could/would – and talk about those MUCH more important topics that you and your friends wisely acknowledge and discuss.
