One of the funniest moments in my teaching is a memory of a middle school student who, along with her peers, proudly presented me a huge card at the end of the school year. Made out of construction paper, beautifully and tastefully decorated, the girls were anxious with anticipation as I read the outside of the card, “Ms. Taylor……” (with hearts all over the outside).
Drum roll please……
I opened the card, read the inside and choked up as I looked up into the grinning girls’ faces and thanked them. The message: “You’re the beast!”
