As teachers, we often do not know what happens to our students after they leave our classrooms. Sometimes the kiddos come back to say hi, but most of the time, we never see them again. But once in a while, a former student sends an email that just warms your heart. A few minutes ago, I checked my email and I wanted to post it here so that in those times that I forget why I do what I do, I can refer back to this post :)
Subject: hi from a former stat student
Hello Mrs. X,
This is StudentName, I used to be a student of yours in AP Stat. I’m not sure if you remember me but I just wanted to say thank you for doing such an amazing job teaching stat. I’m currently taking Elementary Statistics at NameOfCollege and I still remember a ton from the class and it is helping immensely! I feel like everything in this class is just a review.
Thanks so much!
And that, my friends, makes my heart happy. :)
