1. This is one of the early rungs on the ladder. A second grader wrote a thank you note last week to a wonderful Match teacher, Ms. Goodwin.
2. This is the one of the later rungs on the ladder. Two old guys having drinks with 3 Match alums. They were about 14 years old when Bob Hill and I met them in 2000 and 2001. Now they're 27. We hung out for a few hours at the pub down the street from Match High. Travis works in I.T. for Fidelity. Ashlie works for Bain. Stesha clerks for a Superior Court judge.
I suspect young Lily will have a beer with Ms. Goodwin in 20 years. Or maybe tea. Or perhaps take one of Ms. G's Zumba courses.
Thanks to all our teachers.
