Day 109

I appreciate you.  I don’t say it enough to my students. I should say it every day. Let me edit that: I should say it every day to every student.

While working with them can be challenging, I never stop appreciating them. No matter what is going on outside of the classroom, they always make the day better. I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m saying that I appreciate them.

I appreciate them for who they are.

I appreciate them for their individuality.
