A Quote to Remember

I was having a conversation with a small group of eighth graders I've been working with for the past two years when I brought up something that happened in my classroom at my old school. This was the conversation that ensued:

Student: Wait, you had your own classroom?

Me: Yes, not here. Over at *****.

Student: I didn't know that. What did you teach there?

Me: 7th grade language arts.

Student: How long?

Me: I was there for the two years before I was here.

Student: You know they loved you, right?

Me: Who did?

Student: The students.

Me: How do you know?

Student: Just trust me. I know they did. They thought you were awesome! And they miss you now.
