For decades, Bruce Farrer has been asking his high school students to write letters to their future selves. He impressed upon his students that the 10-page letters should be carefully and thoughtfully written, as he wholeheartedly planned to mail them back to his students after twenty years had passed. Bruce has kept his promise, tracking down students over twenty years after the letters were written.
Bruce’s assignment is an inspiration to us. His story is a lesson for us. And Bruce is exactly the type of educator we all aspire to be.
