Two words I have never heard from a student: Thank you.
I heard those words from numerous students today. A couple thanked me after my second class. Practically every student who left my room at the end of the day had those words to say to me. Totally made the week that much brighter.
I have officially survived my first week as a "real" teacher and I couldn't ask for a better week. Well, I'm sure I could, but I'm not going to push it.
Time to go home and unwind from a long, four-day first week. Or sit back and get more lessons done...
