I know my recent posts, and this current post, have not been food related but this has been an important week.

Today’s post is about my visit last night to the school where I student taught last semester so I could watch my students get inducted into their World Language Honor Society. After the ceremony, I went down to the cafeteria to join them for cake. One of my students really wanted to introduce me to her parents. Before I continue, let me note that when I spoke to her last semester she said that she was not sure if she wanted to go to college or not and if so, she wasn’t sure what she would be going for. During the course of this exchange last night, she told her dad that because of the conversations she had with me, I was part of helping her decide that she wanted to continue with education and become a Chinese teacher.

I can’t tell you in words how much this means to me. I’m not sure what I could have said to encourage her towards this decision but I know that I’m in it for the students and the real and deep, human connections I can make with them. That’s probably the best and worst part of being an educator. Worst, because you know that life moves on and your students will move on and hopefully they won’t all forget you. Best, because of those connections and because I can hope to inspire my students but I KNOW they will all inspire me. I’m in it for them and I couldn’t ask for anything more. Here is a big thank you to my past, my current, and my future students.

I am (read: we are) sooooo, so, so, sososososoooooooo, SOOOOOO proud of all of the students today!! They should be proud of themselves for their hard work and presentations as well. They deserve all the praise in the world. It was such an amazing experience, like none I&#8217;ve ever had before. Our students are an inspiration. THANK YOU ALL. #rutgersgse #youthinaction #saywhat #100happydays #100hungrydays #100happilyhungrydays #day42
