"You're the best teacher ever!"

Have you ever heard this from your students before?  I heard it again today.  What I love best about this is that I am the only teacher most of them have ever had.  LOL

Someday I think I'm going to write a book about what my students have said to me.  When I was student teaching, I had a student ask me if I was married.  I wasn't at the time so I said no.  She said "Doesn't anybody love you?"  I was floored.  I didn't know what to say.  Finally, I said that my parents loved me.  It's fourteen years later and I still haven't forgotten that conversation.

Just this week, one of my Kinders told me "My heart is broken" in this very melancholy voice.  I asked him if he knew what that meant.  He told me that it's when you are very sad.  I asked him why he was sad and he said "Oh, I'm not" and got back in line.  I just love Kinders!
