I was leaving Walmart - dressed in gum clothes which isn't as bad as it sounds with pre-gym hair - and one of my last year students ran up and greeted me.
As always I snarled and said "man, I can go anywhere especially here" but have had a smile on my face every since. I also know she knew I was really pleased.
She went out of her way to greet me.
Feels good and remember, your teachers really do feel good when you recognize them outside of the classroom.
