Almost there...

Facebook for the win.

I just got pinged by a former student, now ten years later. She said:
Sorry to bother you if you're not the same woman who taught at GHHS. If you are the same Ammy Hill, I'd like to add you as a friend. I never got to tell you what an awesome teacher you were. I took your drama class my first year of high school. I felt like I really learned a lot about theater and myself. I found it really inspirational that you obviously enjoyed talking about the subject on which you were lecturing.

And now I'm going to go tear up a little. Some days I really miss teaching. I can't afford to do it, not and pay my mortgage, but there's a part of me that hopes that someday I'll be able to go back as a retirement career.
