|Day 3 of 31 at TWT!|
Did I do enough of that? What happened to my brilliant plan to try this? (Guess I'll stick that on the 'maybe next year' list!) Should I have pushed that kid harder, been more on top of this one's issues?
When they leave me, will they keep being readers, writers, and learners? Will they be better people?
Luckily, reassurance tends to come just when you need it. And when I checked my email on Tuesday morning, I was surprised to see a sweet thank-you note from a former student I'd recently written a letter of recommendation for. (Even though it's one more thing on my to-do list, I love writing letters of recommendation, especially for students I've had for several years.)
