It's teacher appreciation week, and already the blessings are flowing. This morning, a student came into my room with a basket full of supplies. I thought it was one of my teacher friends surprising me, but when I went her room, this student had given her a basket, too. My heart leaped. The kind words of appreciation she wrote on the note in the basket were a balm to my teaching soul. It was another confirmation that students really do connect and care with their teachers if the teachers are willing to do the same. It's an amazing dynamic. Teens ROCK!
