This has been one of those years at school -- I have had a parent tell me that all the teachers hate me, another parent berate me for a mistake, teachers angry at me for doing things that I was asked to do by administration, and the list goes on. There have been days when I have been in tears before school even started.
Well, Tuesday I was in tears again, but this time over my seniors. During a conversation during class about advertising and how they try to convince you that you need something, my students asked me what was something that I thought I needed (after I had asked them) and I told them that I wanted a four-slice toaster and a griddle.
Well, about a month has passed since that conversation, and yesterday, my senior class brought me a gift -- yeap, they had bought me a toaster. Here it is:
I love my toaster, and I love my students. Really was something I needed after the year I have had so far, makes it all worth while.
