No kidding, I have become a grandmother. Or precisely, a grand aunt. In Taiwanese, "grand teacher."
Students from my early teaching career are those that I miss most. They are very respectful. There is an old Chinese saying for "once a teacher, a life-time father (parent)." One of my former students have become a father, for the fourth time. I met one of his daughters yesterday and she called me "teacher-grandma (grand teacher." The girl, at two, was so darling. She recited four Chinese poems to me.
