Better than an apple

September 2, 2009

Better than an apple. Better than an entire TREE of apples:

When last semester’s most challenging student looks up where/when you are teaching and comes in to say hi.

When it’s the underperforming student you encouraged to meet his full potential.

When it was clear by the look on his face at the time that very few people have ever challenged him to do that.

Because he’s so intimidating.

This, is why I teach.
