Aww, shucks

I got an email yesterday from an ex-student telling me how he had raised his GPA, how he has a scholarship to college next year, and (this is the oh, gee moment) how I was his most influential teacher.

He was in a repeater class, the worst class I have ever had, the one where I never got control and struggled to teach the entire class. (The one where I learned one truly dedicated student can destroy it for everyone else) So I would teach the ones I could. I am humbled by his email.

This is what it is all about.

PO I love how these come in when you need them and don't expect them.

Congratulations!Those moments are rare. You deserve it. If this is the class I think it is (which made you unhappy last year), you worked really hard for very little reward.
