Today was amazing. I had my first class in 6 months, and it felt so good to be with the kids again. I only have one course I'm teaching, but it was so much fun. They came in literally cursing and yelling that they had the "mean" teacher (they used much more colorful language, but my niece reads this occasionally!), and by the time class was done, they were complaining the bell rang too early.
THAT is the mark of a good day.
