Feeling Good

One of the best feelings in the world is waking up to a Facebook page and mailbox full of birthday wishes from former students, kids who should have long forgotten me.  Some go back 10 years.

My AP thought I was awful.  The students, the ones that mattered didn't and really, that is all that counts, or should I say counted.  I feel for today's teachers who, because of VAM, won't be able to do what I did.

Awww, Happy Belated Birthday!

I rather get birthday wishes from my students, than listen to a hypocritical administrator.

You should always feel great when years pass but your students' fond memories of you is still there.
