I've had a few good moments teaching this week. Today a boy said I was his favorite teacher - I'm pretty sure without sarcasm. (I teach Algebra... so, like, who deems math their favorite? - other than me of course. ) Yesterday I put up a type of problem we hadn't done in a while up for the warm up and a girl said "Yes! I love these!" And the other day I said something about math not being the most interesting class (a student was drifting) and a girl said "Actually this class goes by the fastest." Little comments like these let me know I'm doing okay.Teaching has soo many tough moments - it is ones like these that make it worth it.
@cford08 what did you guys pick?
So funny story.. as I am backing out of my parking spot at the hospital today (after finding out I passed my 3 hr GD test) this older man was backing out across from me as well. I happened to see him in my back up camera and thought, dang, he's really close to me. So I stopped and he stopped, and he opened his door to yell at me, "What the hell is wrong with you!?" I yelled back, "Nothing at all sir, I don't have gestational diabetes!"
He just stared at me as I drove away with a huge smile on my face. IMMD. lol
@cford08 That is like my dream nursery and have that picture on my phone! I want that wall sooo bad. We are doing those colors with some wood and metal accents, but we're currently in a rent house and will only be there for 1 more year so we didn't want to paint or put anything crazy on the walls that we would just shortly have to take down. I guess our 2nd child will get it
