After a long day, I grabbed my bags, headed out the door, and went home. It wasn’t until after I unpacked my belongings and began planning dinner that I finally checked my phone. I found this waiting for me:
After the shock wore off, and a few tears were shed, I send a Remind message back to thank Connor*, that same student from yesterday’s post.
I don’t expect messages like that, for teaching is my job, and I love what I do. Still, what a nice surprise.
