A Timely Reminder

I love my job.  I really do, but it's no secret that sometimes it's a bit challenging.  I've found this week particularly challenging so far (yes, today is only Wednesday.)  Occasionally, it makes me question my effectiveness as a teacher (and it was one of those weeks.)  Monday was no good at all, Tuesday was average, and today was getting better, so things were on the up and up. 

Then, the universe sent me a message (via a former parent of a student I was lucky enough to teach for 7 years...)

Hi Tez

I'm doing a bragging parent thing which is boring I know (!) but I'm so proud of my girl.  She was awarded Academic Honours at school yesterday, given to top 20 students in each year based on their grade point average in semester 1.  I couldn't believe it actually but just shows how hard she is working.  That work ethic must have started with you!!

I hope all is going well with you.  I think of you all a lot.


*sigh* Humbled by the universe and so thankful for the reminder that I'm doing the right thing (I may have burst into tears after reading that.)

I love her too! I still read that email every once in a while when I need a pick-me-up!
