I know most of my students like me. I can tell by attendance, by their work habits and by their questions and by the relaxed and happy manner in the classroom. There are always students lingering after class, happily walking me to my car, chatting all the way.
Last Tuesday, as I left, a quiet young man stayed behind. He said he told his friend to take my class next term. His reason, "she doesn't let you leave until you understand perfectly." This comment made my night. No Danielson is needed to tell me I am effective.
