The best compliment

 One of my student's moms emailed me after the first week of school with this story about her daughter.

Chloe is wiped out today. She loved school this past week and she has no anxiety at all about it which is so nice.  After the first day of school, she came home and dressed like you, the sweater with the skinny belt on the outside of your sweater, and then she closed her door and Micah and I listened outside her door and she was playing teacher.  So cute and she has always really liked your style of teaching.  Jarett said, wish she could teach Chloe every year:)

This made me realize all over again how much I can truly impact my students simply by the way I make them feel (oh and the way I dress). I don't plan to take that lightly.
