With my birthday approaching, several students wished me happy birthday today. One brought me a bagel. Another made me a card decorated with balloons (noting it was the extent of his artistic capability). The writing in the card made me very happy.
I hope that you are able to have a day full of celebration without nagging parents and the weight of responsibility.
I want to thank you for challenging me as a student and as a person. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed learning calculus and hanging out with you in class this year.
You are a fantastic teacher and role model and deserve the best day!
Stay Golden Mr. Math Teacher,
These moments help me to remember why I teach. They are so needed these days!
