About an hour ago, one of my former students from two years ago visited me at school. He is on the USA Paralympic Hockey team and just got back from Sochi, Russia. We had parent-teacher conferences tonight and he brought his gold medal over for me to see. I was so touched and honored that he would do that. I had fun holding and wearing the medal and posing with him. His name is Brody Roybal and is the youngest member of the team at age 15, and one of the most genuinely nice people on the planet. I just wanted to share this excitement with all you guys. This is a great moment in my life and a very fitting sendoff as I prepare to retire in May.
