I loved reading this. Your students are lucky and I'm sure when you get back on that horse, you'll win your race! This is the other side of teaching that people don't know about and frankly many students don't trust. That young lady learned to trust that you honestly care and now she doesn't want to let you down. I have faith the young man will soon follow. Students spot a phoney a mile away and that's why you will get through to your mentee, you're determined, sincere and let's face it genuine. Happy 2012
