One quick thing before I head out to 'Dracula' with some of my favorite girls. I had one of the sweetest things said to me by a parent today at day #2 of conferences! It was truly sweet, I promise! ;-)
She was talking about how much her daughter looked up to me and that she viewed me as her role model. The real clincher was that she said her daughter had always wanted to be a teacher but lately had been feeling down about the idea, however, since meeting me and being in my class, I have renewed and fueled her desire to become an educator.
Awww, I could've cried right then and there---but didn't. Those comments make it all worthwhile.
