One of my students asked me to sign his yearbook.
  1. I can remember asking teachers to sign my yearbooks when I was younger, but never my counselors.
  2. I didn't even know who my counselors were.
  3. And I'm not super close with this kid, but we have a pretty decent relationship.
    It's actually more like a love/hate relationship because he loves to instigate but it's usually funny and harmless.
  4. So for him to actually ask me to sign his yearbook...I was really surprised and flattered.
  5. And it makes me feel special for a few minutes.
    Because most of the time I don't even realize that I'm significant in these kids' lives.
