Random Thought: A Quickie On Not Seeing A Student

She began with a whispered “Dr. Schmier, can I talk with you for a second?” Her second lasted about forty-five heart-wrenching minutes. She ended with “Please don’t judge me.”

No, I won’t judge her because if I am judgmental of any student, I won't really see or listen to her or him; she or he will become an invisible, unnoticed, valueless cellophane person to me; and, if I really don't see or listen to her or him, I’ll have no time for her or him.

         Make it a good day.
