Thursday was an awesome day for the most part. The weather was cold and rainy, I felt sick, I had some disrespectful students (not mine)… but none of that matters because everything else made up for it!
When I walked into my 4th, 10th, and 11th grade classes, they all started singing, “Happy Birthday” to me in English. The 10th and 11th graders gave me cakes and champagne. I received well over 100 flowers from the students in the school- I couldn’t even carry all of them with me home because there were so many. I’ve never felt so appreciated before for something that I am doing. It was such a good feeling to have students that I don’t even teach give me flowers and tell me they wish me success and many years of happiness. The best part? I’ve known them less than 2 weeks!
Look at all of the flowers the students got me in my school!! I’m pretty sure I got over 100. I’ve never felt so appreciated for something that I do before… this is the most rewarding part of teaching.
