For many students, especially prior to high school, their teachers can be major figures, even role models in influencing their lives. Occasionally, the fondness for the teacher becomes so intense that they develop a “crush” or infatuation with the teacher. Such was the case with Joseph and his English teacher “Miss Crudo.” The two years in her classes seemed to just fly by for this starry-eyed youngster, as the inevitable last day of school arrived. This short story describes those two years and the anguish of the arrival of that final day. The story finishes by suggesting that maybe that was not the final day of their association after all.
