The end of the day has arrived. Students are packing up. My new student approaches, holding her Smartpal. She shows me the note you see above. And I don't know what I've done today to inspire such a lovely and thoughtful note. But this student had not been in a physical classroom for a year and when she joined our class, it was my goal to make her feel welcome and included.
Some days it is hard to know if you are making a positive impact or any impact. And then some days you get a note that helps you know you do make a difference.
