The chocolate was a sweet touch (pun intended) but the words? I’ve rarely felt so honored at the end of a class.
The card itself is a nod to a running class joke–never again will I assign such an irritating pop culture artifact for analysis–but I couldn’t help but smile at it. I’ll even admit that Miley Cyrus graced my fridge for a time.
Although I kept my tears in check until hours later–several students asked if I going to cry in class–I remain touched by this gesture and grateful for thoughtful students. Definitely reminds me of why I love teaching so much!
