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.
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?
