sometimes teaching middle school feels like this...
but when you're lucky, one of the students/cats writes you a thank you note like this...
now it doesn't really matter to me that writing this note was an assignment from another class.
i don't care at all.
and yes, it will go in my "this is why i teach" folder.
and i will smile because now one of my students can say he "writes so awesome."
and that makes me feel pretty good.
