Stan was a high-school French teacher, he admired to teach, and he was acceptable at it, he’d bigger be afterwards about 15-years. Thankfully, he’d been a abecedary that long, as even agents with 10-12 year administration had been laid off afresh with all the annual cuts, alarming stuff. Luckily, he was still working, because he had a babe who’d amount him a appealing penny in the next 4-6 years. Yes, he enjoyed the apple of education, but he aswell admired getting a father, but was somewhat afraid of his babe traveling abroad to academy in Palo Alto, CA at Stanford University.
That was appealing far abroad from home, his babe was not a affair type, never did drugs, and she had a adroitness for computers amidst added things. His babe was a lot like his wife, sassy, commanding, but acute as a whip, and she had all his attributes as well; harder plan ethic, perfectionism, annual for authority, athleticism, and was absolutely ambition oriented, so she’d do fine, which of course, was the “only option” because those apprentice loans would accept to be paid back, and amoroso wasn’t traveling to bondservant away, bankrupt his accumulation if his babe wasn’t serious.
Of course, he capital his babe to be able accomplish on her own, even if she’d apparently acquisition a affluent Silicon Valley startup millionaire to ally forth the way. Although, she wasn’t too into amusing networking, she absolutely could be if Facebook capital her to intern there next summer. She was abrogation all her options open. She admired Apple, and Google, and well, things were alpha to hop afresh in the Valley at IBM, Intel, as well. Just about everywhere forth the 101 corridor, and First Artery in San Jose was hiring too.
Meanwhile, beyond the artery from the University, the old Venture Capital army was aback blind out, authoritative plans, and yes, authoritative money too. This additional activity for Silicon Valley was good, in the absolute world, bookish domain, and in the basic one as well. Stan admired he was in on the next new thing, he actual abundant absent getting in on the action, but he was far abroad from Silicon Valley, and was accomplishing okay, conceivably even active through the eyes of his daughter, absent her to accomplish area he hadn’t. Oh sure, he was successful, for a French Teacher, but he had absolutely hoped for more.
Stan and his wife got their babe into her abode allowance at Stanford and headed back, for Stan academy started in beneath than a week. The academy was cast new, congenital on the aforementioned property, just all new buildings. The old ones were still there too. On the new barrio he lamented; “the acrylic isn’t even dry yet, literally,” as he chock-full in at Starbucks afterwards a annular of abecedary meetings, on-going education, and acclimatization with the latest in academy technologies. The new academy was state-of-the-art, agenda blackboards, WiFi enabled, agenda text-books, you name it, they had it.
“Wow,” he thought, “this is traveling to be absolutely air-conditioned indeed,” and it was all of that and added as the academy year started. It was easier to accumulate the kids’ absorption with all the multi-media, easier to present chic lectures, power-points, use the Internet. What a difference. Still, he felt, it was an accomplished abecedary that would absolutely be able to accomplish use of all this, as it takes teaching acquaintance to accomplish it all work. As he got acutely proficient, bisected the academy year was already over. His babe couldn’t appear home for Spring Break, as she’d taken on a job at IBM as an intern and would be traveling to acclimatization over the holiday.
That’s accept Stan thought, he absent his daughter, and so too did his wife, but he was actual aflame for her success, and now with the new iPhone App, they generally text-messaged back-and-forth and did video augment ancestors buzz calls too. Turns out his babe denticulate so top on the IBM intern tests, they put her on the analysis aggregation alive on Holographic Spectral Imaging, for none added than classroom applications in education, and she’d be alive on the testing phase, application the technology. She was so destroyed abroad by the technology that she alleged her dad and asked if he’d like to try it in his French Class?
“Absolument, je veux l’essayer,” he said, and back she was branch up the intern aggregation and they’d absitively to try it out in assorted locations of the country, she fabricated it so. She told her father, “Dad, I don’t apperceive about the blow of the apple but IBM is acceptable the future, I beggarly they are bringing the approaching like, des mainenant!”
As her dad was application the system, he fabricated several recommendations, and even re-wrote the chiral in French for IBM, which was so afflicted they assassin him as a part-time adviser at $100,000 per year. Now he was authoritative a aberration afresh in Silicon Valley, bringing the basic apple into the bookish world, while planning the approaching in the absolute world. IBM donated added accessory to his high-school as well, every classroom, and he won “Teacher of the Year” for the absolute district, “imagine that,” he thought, “a average French teacher.” Stan never absent his faculty of humor.
He got with the computer science abecedary and they came up with a new scheme, the computer science abecedary aswell got a $100,000 per year consulting arrangement and four of the kids in anniversary of their classes got fractional scholarships to Stanford, with intern opportunities at IBM of course. In fact, IBM called their new basic abecedary assistant, 3D Stanley, a pun on the old “Flat Stanley” 2D avatar, as able-bodied as a accolade to Stan.
Stanley 3D was anon teaching French and English all over the world. Some 400 actor Chinese Acceptance are acquirements from English from Stanley, the VR abettor hologram of Stan’s image, in China. In India, there were already 200 actor acceptance watching him every day and acquirements English, and he absent calculation of the absolute amount of countries acquirements either French or English from his basic self, and accidental royalties to IBM and his retirement account, the accomplished ancestors was animated now.
At Thanksgiving, his daughter, said, “Dad, I achievement you are appreciative of me, I am alive so hard, Stanford is absolutely tough,” and Stan just looked at her and said, “you are greatest babe in the world, you did good, Je suis besom de vous.”
