PS. Thank you – somewhere in Daegu a teacher trainer is smiling

This arrived in my inbox. I share this message because it warmed my heart.

“PS. I can’t recite exactly what I’ve learned from day 1 till now in your class, but I feel sure that I’ve learned about how to organize the lesson from the students’ perspective and how to build the lesson step by step. even though I have a hard time doing my lesson that way at the moment, it seems I’ve found in which direction to go. That’s a big leap for me. Thank U !”

The semester ends in two weeks.  Knowing that I reached at least one teacher is one of the best New Year’s gifts I could receive.

  1. Hi Josette,
    I wish I had someone like you as my teacher back then when I started teaching. :) There were nice teachers-colleagues to help out and support me though.

    I’m sure you have reached other teachers too.

    So glad that I met you & so many wonderful teachers now, and as you said learning is a process. So, let’s keep up with it. Tks for sharing this note of appreciation. Very inspiring.

    1. Hello Rose,
      What a generous way to look at this post. I could say the same of you no doubt. Your blog posts are great indication of the heart you put into your teaching. Your students are a lucky bunch. :)

      I share your gratitude in meeting you and all the amazing teachers in this wonderful world of blogging and Twiiter. Thanks you Rose!

  2. Josette,

    Thank you for sharing this note of appreciation from a teacher realizing their potential and learning to trust themselves and their students. It’s a testament to your program that teachers reach this kind of awareness. But it’s also a reflection of how you must create s space for learning for your students (and yourself). Thanks for a great post to start off 2013.

    Kevin

    1. And thank you for taking the time to share your supportive words here Kevin. Knowing that I have friends and colleagues with whom I can celebrate learning means a lot to me. Thank you for making it possible.
