More reasons why I teach

This is my fuel. This is why I teach. Sure, I won’t please everyone. Not everyone will appreciate or will be happy with the way I teach, but even if there’s one person in the class who thinks the time they spent in my class was worth it – that’s all the reason I need.

This is what I got today from a student:

And a few others from a while back:

And a few more here.

This warms my heart. If and when I get tired, all I need to do is remember these times, these messages, these cards. That’s enough to energize me and put me back on track.

    I can’t prevent my goal oriented personality from speaking up. One out of 20? Only 5% efficiency?? Everything less than 80% is underachievement! 🙂

    PS. Sometimes numbers get me clicked 😉
