I had a student tell me that he has never had a teacher like me. He said that he had never cared about school before and had always felt stupid. He said he felt like I had 'learned' him something (And yes, he said learned) He said my class was fun and interesting. He said he loved me. He told me I was a great teacher.
Kids are amazing and this one made me cry. He gave me a big hug. Its kids like him that make me love the teaching part of my job.
Too bad all the other stuff is stressful!
