When the Student Surpasses the Teacher

A few weeks ago, a group of friends and I attended a performance of the musical, Beautiful. What made this trip to N.Y.C. extra special was that we were going to have a Q and A with the show's director, Marc Bruni. Thirty years ago, Marc was a student of mine in an after school program. Seeing him for the first time since then made me gush with pride; my student had become a successful Broadway director!

Anyone who is a teacher understands how proud I felt. We refer to our students as "our kids", even though we are not their parents. Congratulations, Marc! You have surpassed your teacher!!
