I've known Colton since October 2007 when he became a student in my AP English Literature class online. He was a senior in high school & from our first conversation, I knew that I had a new favorite student (it's true, we have favorites...there are some students I connect with more than others, just like people in any situation in life).
We stayed in touch throughout Colton's college career (facebook IS good for some things): he had dual majors of English Literature & English Education. Just when I thought I couldn't be prouder, during Colton's senior year, he became my intern for two semesters. Naturally he excelled. (He excels at everything: he won so many awards in college that I use him as an example of "understatement" when I say that he did "OK" in college.)

Colton has said that one day he'd like to be our CEO. It wouldn't surprise me one bit. It also wouldn't surprise me if within 5 years, he'd be my boss. I hope he'll give me a raise!
