The personal learning network for educators
students worry whether you’ll still come in, after you take off from work in the morning?
the way they greet you excitedly when you finally arrive?
students come back and visit, or send an email saying, “Thank you!”?
they don’t pretend they don’t see you at the mall?
tell you that you’re their favorite teacher?
bring you cake from their birthday party?
say “We missed you”, and mean it, when you’ve been out?
make a card, that they all sign, for your sick __________?( In my case my Dad.)
try to teach you how to do the dougie at the school dance? ( I still can’t do it)
draw you pictures? (Make sure you hang them where they can see it)
give you a moment to cry when you get sad news?
let you know that your hair is messed up after a windy Recess?
give you a hug, just because? (Elementary kids)
they catch you dancing to “Unwritten”, and laugh with you, not at you!?
As a teacher, isn’t it wonderful to be able to have students who can brighten your day, change your outlook, and make you smile?
