Day 215 of My Italian Learning Journal*
What a great profession and work place I'm in. I work with high school students and what fine young individuals they are. Today it was my privileged and pleasure to take our valedictorian and salutatorian to a Rotary Club luncheon at which our two top students were honored for their achievements. Both young ladies are so bright and talented. Soon they will be off to a university and pursue their professions. It is most rewarding to have been part of the lives during their high school years. (Corrections to my Italian practice script below are welcome.)
