I love the way you wrote about the Jessica story. It's so real and true. It hit home for me because I myself secretly yearn to be a Jessica all the time.

I've taught before (adults), and it's true: I *do* care for some students more than others. Some people stick in my head for various reasons: Sometimes they're smart, sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're talented, sometimes I just *like* them for who they are. Of course some people stick in my head b/c they were annoying jerks, or pests, or show-offs or bullies...

There are people whose names I still remember. And others whose faces I've blanked out -- if they came up to me on the street I wouldn't recongize them!

I guess the brain allocates only a certain amt of space for "student" or "client" info. The special ones stay, and I find myself caring more about them. But I still do care about all of the students, and I want them to learn.

But enough about ME...back to YOU... from all you've written, I have to believe you ARE a Jessica to your T. But I really also believe he won't/can't tell you. It's a weird situation...but I honestly believe he DOES care.
