A Pick Me Up

When schedules and PD get me down, I always find one of these in the mail.

This kid got a 5 on the AP exam.

Hi Ms. POd! This is jack, today is my first day of class, and I just came back from my morning 8:00AM calculus class, my professor is somebody like Mr. Punman, he is very funny, and calculus obsessed, haha.
I have to say, the stuff I learned in your class is so useful, everything we did today he thought we didn't learn yet, but I knew all of it, you know, the area between 2 curves using dy, he is going to do 3 curves next class I think, but it would be very simple because I took AP Calculus in Packemin with you!
I will visit once Packemin starts class, probably on a Tuesday. See you soon!

All I can say is, thank G-d for the kids. I was in a total funk yesterday when a former student (one of two who have my cell phone number) sent me a text to inform me of her new phone number- lest we lose contact with each other. It is things like that that will keep me going.

Do you have a homeroom?? If so, you should copy these emails and find a place in your classroom where you can hang them. So the next time AP comes into your room to "observe" and he is waiting to hear that pin drop, you can glance over to those messages and
crack a smile.

He knows how the kids feel about me. He doesn't care.

No, that's not for your AP to see, it's for you to look at and smile--
(like the lyrics of the song "TAKE ME AWAY)and he will be wondering why you are smiling??
