I got struck by the school-wide plague, otherwise known as the flu. I was out sick for two days last week. Don’t worry though, I’m well on my way to a full recovery and I’ll be back in the classroom tomorrow.
What I most wanted to share about my sickness experience is this: Last night, I received a text (yes, I text with some of the parents in my class) from the mother of my most troubled and troubling student. THAT student who has been mentioned many times before now on this blog. The text said, “We hope u r feeling much better so we can see u Monday!”
With as little success as her child has had in my classroom, I’m somewhat amazed that she doesn’t hate me. And moreover, I was very touched by her text message.
