Thanksgiving Challenge - Day 17

This week I'm doing tutorials with each of my students which is basically a 15 minute, one-on-one meeting to discuss their next paper. Today I met with 10 students, and I have to say that I'm thankful for each and every one of them. Even the 28 I didn't meet with today.

My students are diverse and interesting and thoughtful.

Some say thank you after every class.

Some fall asleep.

I have learned a lot from my students (I hope they can say the same of me), and I have enjoyed them immensely.

Most days.

No matter what, though, they have given me a new reason to get up in the morning (at 5:45!) and have made me realize yet again that I am a teacher at heart.

What about you? What are YOU thankful for today?

  2. I love that, Suzanne! Laughter is SO important. Glad you had a good day!

  3. I'm thankful for a husband who does the laundry because he knows how much I hate it. Plus he made dinner. I'm spoiled, but I'm nice about it! ;)
