Clip to ScrapBook #1

In a toxic school, something good happened today. A student that I had in 3rd grade, my very first year of teaching, came back to visit. He is now a senior at the high school. He said he was starting to think of college essays and then something about people who influenced you/ shaped who you are. He said that I along with a couple other of his teachers did that. He thanked me for it.

This kid was incredible. He had just arrived in the U.S. from Hong Kong. I would tell him to just do a little of the homework. He would insist on doing it all. He spent a lot of time on it.

This is the second time in my ten years this has happened. It helps to remind me that despite all the B.S., that is the reason I went into teaching.

Yay for you rachelmpd...it is definitely nice to hear this! I've heard it a few times, and it always makes my day.
