To be crying at my old school reports?

I am 28 years old. Why am I crying at my primary school reports?
I was amused in a kind of detached way at my 8 year old self writing 'I used to hate school but now I like it more. I am very slow.' And 'I need to be less slow' and 'I am too slow' in every personal statement. Then the teachers saying 'Britta needs to stop daydreaming' and 'Britta should work faster'.
But then, in year five, a supply teacher has written 'Britta is an asset to the collective purpose of the class, for all societies need dreamers.'
I'm a mess of snot and tears.
I bloody loved that teacher.

He taught me for one term of my life.
My life has included SO MANY ridiculous things, I have had awful things happen to me, nearly died, been bullied and attacked, been sectioned, been in police cells and now I am a single mum on benefits and medication.
Still, it is that sentence that made me cry. Shows the power one good teacher can have
