For today's Blogging Challenge, we were asked what our students would say about us. While I could certainly give you my opinion this, I figured it would be better if I simply asked them myself. I have been fortunate to build lasting relationships with many of my former students, some who are now college students (which makes me feel super old), and I keep in touch with many of them through Facebook. So... here's what I posted in preparation for this post:
What do my students think of me? Good question! Let's ask them...
And here are their answers, verbatim:
RT: Fun loving, relatable, and creative.
SS: The worst! Just kidding. Super fun, helpful, exciting, energetic, and passionate (and everything Rachel said)
CK: Let's see what I can remember from 5 years ago... You were the best! Always there for your students and willing to listen and help. :)
VP: Relatable or warm hearted.
CB: Energy filled and a huge desire to have her students learn about education and their own lives.
EZ: Enthusiastic, caring, and genuinely trying to get to know each student and make learning fun. :)
KW: AMAZING! and the best teacher in the world and still my favorite teacher!
NK: AH, JD, and I still talk about all the fun and creative memories we had in your class. You always gave us a good laugh and were there to listen to our crazy stories.
JK: How to rage!
As you can see, I have pretty much the best students in the world! I mean, I certainly wouldn't expect any of them to tell me I'm awful or boring, but they definitely didn't have to respond at all. It makes my heart happy whenever I hear from my kiddos, and this thread pretty much has me beaming!
I wish I could use this as a letter of recommendation! :)
