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."

This is such a sweet story. I think it's amazing he still remembers these people after 30 years!

Awww, how sweet!
This teacher sounds like he shares a kindred spirit with our very own beloved Dark Knight!.... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

I think our member Dark Knight deserves an appreciation award for remembering all of our birthdays.
The birthday threads here are so thoughtful!.... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.
