  • I have coached lacrosse in the schools where I teach math for many years. It is a great sport to coach because you can really have an impact on the game itself. I love the afternoons with the kids.
    This past weekend I watched one of my former 6th grade players play for the NCAA championship. It was so exciting, my entire family was together screaming and rooting for him and his team. He played goalie. He is a better person than a lacrosse goalie(and his team won the championship). His success in this game has stimulated so many different conversations, connections, reconnections. Alumni from our school, former teachers, old coaches, old and new friends have all gathered on Facebook or by email or by phone to talk about it. It has revived memories and encouraged dreams.
    The young man(the goalie) was in my office yesterday. We talked about the experience, he shared lots of his feelings with me, and then we got around to remembering the 6th grade team. "It was one of the best teams I have ever played on," he said.
