A teacher glows a little
Today, I had one of those rare heart-warming moments as a teacher. A student I've taught now for 2 years came to my desk and thanked me for teaching her (and, of all things, she thanked me for GRAMMAR!). She said her score on the SAT had gone up significantly because of what she'd learned in English class. Ahhhh. It was like balm to the teacher-soul, soothing rainfall to the teacher-ear. She's the 2nd student this year to tell me that about the SAT score. It is very reassuring - I must be doing something right!
