Thank you…

Got a message from a student today. He transferred into my class in early February, from another Intensive Reading class. He’s a senior with special needs, looking forward to graduating in two weeks. When he arrived, he spoke to no one, including me.  Now, he participates in peer discussions and likes to hang out with a few other classmates (and me!) during lunch. 

The message reads:

“I will miss you next year and thank you for getting me out of my no speaking zone and  you are the greatest reading teacher I ever had in the school year.” 

I cried.
I grinned.
I couldn’t be happier.

You are welcome, D.  I will miss you next year, too. Congratulations on your upcoming commencement!
