Unexpected Thank You...

I got a thank you email from a student I had over two years ago....and let me tell you, it was awesome. Have you thanked anyone today?

Ms. B! thank you so much. You are the most amazing teacher. I just want you to know that you are the reason I even know that I can act, and that I like it. So thank you, you pushed me to do a lot of things that I wasn't sure that I was good at, you gave me confidence and encouraged me to follow my dreams. If I was to name a teacher that has done the most for me in my life, I would definitely say you:) so, know that and thank you.

Cool D'Arcy

I have on many occassions wished I could thank many of my past teachers for lessons they taught me so long ago.

In your role as a teacher, a daughter, a friend, you are shaping peoples lives. To hear that you have made such a positive impact is wonderful. Making a positive contribution to our world and those in it should be one of our key purposes in life.

That's awesome. I have gotten a few of those over the years and they do feel really good.

As a parent of a student you teach, I know exactly where this student is coming from. You make the students think outside the box, to question, debate, research and question again.

From a parent, I thank you, I thank you for being there for the Zombie, for not accepting any work that was not what you thought was his best, for encouraging, nagging, pushing and praising.

You are very rare and I know that my Zombie will always carry your words throughout his life. Thanks for making English fun!!
