Me BW Him XSAWH
Every once in a while, you get a reminder of why you teach. Today, a student came to talk to me rather sheepishly. She told me she might have to switch her Math class which could mean she would have to switch history to accommodate. She asked what other periods I teach. I let her know and then also told her another teacher taught the same class and she could also switch to that section.
"I would hate to see you go to another class. You're so great to have in class, but I understand."
she then said, again sheepishly, "Is it okay, Ms. Hurtbs, that even if I Have to change classes I can still come talk to you? History is really hard for me, but I really like the way you teach it. You explain things really well."
I nearly hugged her. Sometimes, you get a good reminder of why you teach. Such a sweetheart.
