“Thank you! #1 teacher!
Dear Ms. Mathinaz,
First of all thank you for all you’ve taught me and my classmates (: Thanks for becoming a teacher here instead of becoming a doctor. I really learned a lot of new math this year thanks to your time you give us everyday (: I also want to thank you for staying the Mondays you stayed to show us advanced math! You have been an awesome teacher and one of my favorites I’ve had since kinder. I’m gonna try to come and visit you next year to say hi and tell you how much I used the math shortcuts, songs and rules you showed me! Hope you had an awesome 1st year of teaching! Ima really miss this class a lot! Thank you for everything <3″
I get so stunned when the kids take time to actually be appreciative, especially because this was NOT a big theme this year. Most of them spent the last ten months hating me, and this girl was polite but just never ever spoke to me. Suddenly they have this amazing nostalgia mixed with hilariously selective memory and I LOVE IT.
