Last semester I posted some notes that I’d gotten from students at the end of exams. I felt a little guilty about it at the time because it seemed a little obnoxious, especially since I know that not every student felt the same way those students did. But I’m glad I posted them because it’s amazing how quickly we forget the nice things that happen in the teaching profession. High school teachers don’t tend to get end of the year gifts from students like elementary teachers do–not that I think we should! I just was always a little jealous of the #1 Teacher mugs my elementary colleagues got in June.
So here is my version of the “#1 Teacher Mug”. You can’t drink coffee out of it, but I’m trying to cut back on coffee anyway.
This is a blog post from one of my students this year. (It’s hard to read but if you click on the graphic you’ll be able to see the full size image.)
