Today a student was so kind to one of my students in a class today. I was so appreciative of how he included my student, asked him questions, and wanted to know more about his field trip. Before I even got back to my classroom, I was wondering if someone was cutting onions in the hallway :).
My students love like a child, and when the world doesn't love them back in that way, it can be heart breaking. When I see the opposite happen for my students, it is the best feeling in the world. These situations remove me from the paperwork and and fill me with pride that I am doing something important; it is a reminder that matters of the heart are so important.
