Finishing up grading, down to the wire, per usual. I could go faster if I didn’t take the time to enjoy the sweet notes from students — who *really* appreciated a little extra flexibility this semester. Some of the notes make me laugh:
“I wanted to say thank you for such an excellent semester. I have gained an exceptional amount of knowledge from the beginning of the semester until now. I will use all that I have learned and carry it with me throughout life.”
What more could a teacher ask, really?
