Good Teacher

When I got back to school after winter break, the first words out of one of my student's mouths were, "Ay Miss! I don't remember nothing!" Of course I laughed--great teaching, right?

This reminded me of a recent conversation I had when I was recently talking to a dear friend who I taught with in Prague. She reminded me of one of my favorite Prague memories. Rod, one of our colleagues, had finished the year teaching his students: they had had 3 hours of English a day for five days a week, September -June. On the second to the last day of class, the students and staff went on their annual year-end picnic. One girl gave Rod a note that read: "Thank you, Rod. I learned many. See you yesterday!"
