    As an avid rock climber, I'm all for anything that promotes safety and avoids degradation of climbing routes. This seems like a tool that could help advance our skills.

    We honored our surviving teachers at our 55th class reunion a couple of years ago. All of them were either too incapacitated or too distant to come. But there was one of them that was aloof and strict that did not stay at our high school very many years. Nevertheless, she went on to be rather successful in another district.
    I wrote her a letter thanking her for the contribution she made in setting a good example for me--I picked up a few pointers from her ability to manage a classroom effectively. Though I never heard back, I was glad I wrote the letter.
    Like Brittany, I've wondered if I shouldn't have shown more gratitude via personal contact to all my teachers.
    I don't get a lot of verbal thanks from my own former students, but when I encounter them, I feel a bond between teacher and student that reflects on great memories more than the difficult times we may have experienced. It's a bond that I believe will carry into the hereafter. So Brittany will likely get her chance yet!
    In the meantime, a general thanks to all those who struggle to contribute to current student's lives. Your reward may be slow, but it will come!
