Love These Kinds of Messages

This evening I received a message from a student I had in statistics last year.  He gave me credit for his acing his first statistics exam in college.

I love it when they do well.  I really do.

That's a great way to finish a workday. :)

Agreed - It really makes you feel like you've accomplished something.

However... I had a student in my Honors Chem (1st year, not AP) that was now attending a well-known university. His parents contacted me to say he had tested out of first semester Chemistry and said it was all thanks to me.

I gleefully related this to the district science supervisor who used it to "prove" I was too demanding in my classes.

So I guess the moral here is to enjoy these moments but if you work with idiots, keep your mouth shut.
