From an ex-student from about 6 years ago via facebook. She's applied to study teaching because I inspired her in Year Six. I've had a smile on my face ever since. If I wasn't a facebook-er, I doubt I would ever have heard from her. Hooray for new technologies!

Makes me feel like the last 9 years of teaching might have been worth something.

That is very special. You should be very proud of the positive influence you had in this woman's life!

I've sent that kind of letter to a number of teachers and mentors in my life. I think it's very important to express gratitude to the people who help shape you and influence your life.

That is wonderful. I know it's much better confirmation coming from a student that you are a great teacher. thumbs_up.gif

How lovely! I'm sure that one small thing must cancel out one large heap of crap, knowing what many teachers have to work with.

Good for you! thumbs_up.gif

Mcaulir, its teachers like you that sent me back to school to become one myself, thank you from across the globe! I only hope I can be as good a teacher as some that I have had.

Thanks everyone! I certainly usually dwell on the things I haven't done right, so it was an amazing thing to hear.
