A Reminder of Why

I teach a class in the fall called Online Publishing I. This class focuses on using various types technology to create and publish online — from blogging to image capturing to editing video on an iPhone and all points in between.

The following is a Twitter conversation I recently had with a former student. It’s a gentle reminder of why I do what I do — and a reminder of how we all have the opportunity to make an impact in the lives of our students.

It had been a while since I walked across UCA at night. I didn’t realize how much I missed it.

No sir! I wish. Just tonight and maybe next weekend. Where are you now? I see you dressing sharp on Insty all the time.

Sports editor/social media director at the newspaper back home. The money isn’t the best but it’s more than I’ve ever made.
