Not the hokey-pokey!

I teach 4th, and had a student several years ago who was a challenge. Very low, and had behavior problems. I was pretty sure he hated me.
He moved schools the next year. I received a paper through intra-district mail. It was a writing assignment "Not all Super-heroes wear capes." He had written that I was his superhero, because I helped him learn. His teacher sent it to me.
He sent me a google doc the same year telling me hi.
Today I received a comment from him on the same document. Saying hi, and that he was now in 7th grade.

Those are the kind of things that make everything worthwhile.

You made such a positive impact on his life that he actually took the time to write you.

What a powerful message he has given to you. It is something to remember on those hard days that you do reach students.

Thank you for sharing this sweet story! I hope he continues to reach out to you or that you all are able to make small connections. You obviously mean a lot to him.
