I get a lot of love letters from my students. Mostly my girls.
I have one precocious child who asked me earlier in the year how long I'd been teaching. To this, I replied 10 years.
She created a doting card for me.
One line read:
"Those ten years really paid off. It seems like you've been teaching 100 years!"
I'm going to take this as a compliment, whether it was intended as one or not!
