I was recently perusing the CPESS (Central Park East Secondary School) alumni Facebook page of students that graduated between 1991-97, looking over their words and photos… and they still like to get together! There were photos of them all there together in Brooklyn. ( Sadly I could’t make it.) Drinking, laughing, hugging, in serious conversation and in hilarious ones. I then looked at all their individual photos—and remembered each of them!
They are there for each other. Thanks “kids” for all the loving and kind words and for keeping the torch alive. And thanks to all my colleagues who made it happen. And those absurdly trusting parents and grandparents! This is the bonus we get from being teachers. “Who could ask for anything more?”
Maybe that should be the measure of a good school?
