Inspired by a student

I just read an essay by a former student of mine, Jessie Bonner. She’s had two prestigious fellowships recently, one in Washington, D.C. and one at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, FL. This final essay for the Poynter fellowship is beautiful, well-crafted, inspiring writing. Another reason I teach is that sometimes I run across students who inspire me as much as I try to inspire others.
