taking note

On Tuesday night, my students, past and present, threw me the most amazing surprise party! INCREDIBLE. In addition, the first and second-year students I am teaching this semester presented me with two sketchbooks, each filled with notes, stories, photos, sketches, memories and advice. Perhaps because I'm always doling it out, I'm particularly fond of the advice. It's nice to be on the receiving end. Here's a selection from the second-year sketchbook. Perhaps it will inspire you as well.

I adore the one about expectations! Such wise and thoughtful students you have! Clearly, you have touched their lives in a very important way. Be proud of that, and enjoy the journey to the next phase... whatever that may be!

So, so great, Suzanne. It's clear from these notes that you've been a wonderful, inspiring teacher.

Made me smile and cry at the same time. Lovely, touching, and well-deserved!

How wonderful! You have touched so many! BTW...this past weekend, I thought I heard the ocean, softly whispering your name...
