Let me tell you, those kids know how to win my heart and make my day. After one of my last classes one little girl came up to me to notify me that she was having the best day ever. After this past class, one of my younger students marched up to me triumphantly and declared:
“I have my own geography class.”
“What?” I was quite obviously confused. “You have two geography classes?”
“Yup! I made my own for my sisters.”
He proceeded to explain to me how he had developed his own class as a game and assigned his younger siblings countries just the way I did. His sister little sister piped up,
“Yeah, he gave me Sudan.”
“Yes and I gave myself Egypt!” he added, quite proud of himself.
So apparently my students mimic my class during the month between celebration meetings. That was pretty much the best compliment I’ve ever recieved in my entire life. I think I want to be a teacher forever.
