Out of the Mouth of Babes

Okay, maybe not babes, but today’s gratitude post comes from things students said to me today.

1. “I went to Borders with my mom earlier this week, and guess what I bought? Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain. I liked Huck Finn so much that I want to read more of his books!”

2. “Thank you for teaching us how to be better writers and for giving us assignments that matter.”

3. “I’m sorry I didn’t listen. Please don’t be mad at me anymore.”

Yeah, days like these are why I came back to teaching.
