okay, so this isn't really really sad news, but it did get me sort of down. one of my favorite (of ALL time) students just got checked out. i'm not sure where he's going, but i worry about him. he seemed to really be making progress here. i was even trying to get him some glasses so he could read without headaches. he was such a hard and faithful worker. really - a good example to me as well as his classmates.
