4 day weekend
This week I had the nice surprise of some former students coming to visit me at lunch and talking about some of their favorite memories from my class last year. These two girls said how much they looked forward to coming to my class every day. They weren't outstanding students, but I guess I really made an impression on them. So much so, that they took time out of their lunch to stop by to say thanks. It was a welcomed break from having to scold naughty kids who don't do their work.
My 6th period class this year is quite the challenge and on Wednesday they were being especially chatty. I was getting a bit frustrated with them and using up all of my 'teacher looks' by the end of the period trying to keep them quiet so I could finish the lesson. I was afraid my face would get stuck like that. The next day, one of those students came in and told me I was his favorite teacher. I had to laugh, because I thought I was being so mean! I guess he thought my mean teacher face was funny or entertaining or something.
And some people say they have no idea how I could be a teacher! The kids make me laugh every day. You can't put a price on that.
