While walking into Day's Market today, the local grocery store by Timpview, I hear "Mrs. McKell!" yelled across the parking lot. I turn to see my typically "too cool" student with his head out the window, smiling and waving at me.
And I felt like a successful teacher who means something to a student.
It's the little things, you know?
**I took the above picture in my classroom back in October to document how exhausted I felt and looked that day. I didn't feel very valued that day but teaching has its ups and downs and other days come and you feel like the exhaustion is worth it.
