On one of my last days at work, I walked in to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers on my table. A precious beginner reader who I have worked with this summer gave me flowers! His mom believed he worked best with me and requested I work solely with her son. That made me feel special or something. Sadly, mom and student were disheartened to discover I was leaving to return to school. The little boy looked at me one day and said, “Miss Suzanne, I’m going to miss you.” Ahhh! So sweet. I never expected a student to like me that much or to give me flowers! These are the moments I am glad I teach.
