Kimber really took me by surprise. When I found out the new school I would be teaching at had a student teacher from tech (that was a sorority girl), I admit that I judged her from the get go. I assumed she was like all the other sorority girls I saw (that I also prejudged) and was not too excited.
Then I met her. My opinions of her changed pretty dramatically. She was so sweet and fun, nothing like I imagined her to be. One day, we wore the exact same outfit, then we hung streamers in the hallway together. She taught me a lesson that I will never forget. I will never prejudge someone on the length of their t-shirts or the letters on the back of their cars again. She has quickly become one of my favorite people ever, constantly saving me from mistakes I've made, and making me laugh when I need it most. I am just pretending that she's not moving away and creating her own life. Ryan keeps asking what I am going to do without "my Kimber" and I haven't figured out the answer yet.
Even though I am sad that she is leaving, I am so excited for her and her new job and the life that is waiting for her in Ft Worth. She's going to make a wonderful teacher and her kids are going to be so lucky to have her!
