I believe that often we meet people and help them because it is the right thing to do. And you shouldn’t expect anything in return. But when that does happen, it is usually a really good thing.
I had the privilege of being able to help out super-teacher Vicki Davis (The Cool Cat Teacher) in 2007. We have been in professional contact on and off over the years since then. She has done some amazing things: Writing some books! Training some teachers! Being invited to Edutopia and Skywalker ranch! Raising some kids! Teaching!
