    Smile Teacher mails birthday greetings to EVERY former student

    Here is a man with a good heart.

    Teacher mails annual greetings to every former student
    "Everybody likes getting mail. Isn't that right?" [Dan] Stroup asks. "Email is nice. But, nothing like finding mail in the mailbox."

    The humble and popular teacher spends a portion of every evening in his living room, quietly writing birthday letters to every student he has had in class in 30 years at Heritage Christian School.

    "Some nights, it's just a few minutes, but last night it was 2 1/2 hours," says Stroup. "Thursday nights are difficult. Because you have to write for Saturday and Sunday."

    Thanks for posting, zinc -- it does my heart good to hear about people & their thoughtfulness.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Awww, how sweet!

    This teacher sounds like he shares a kindred spirit with our very own beloved Dark Knight!

    I think our member Dark Knight deserves an appreciation award for remembering all of our birthdays.

    The birthday threads here are so thoughtful!
