A Nice Compliment

One of my former students sat with me on the bus last night. When he mentioned that one of his other courses was his favourite, I jokingly teased that I was surprised that mine wasn't his favourite. He said that mine was a thinker (the course definitely is), and that I taught the material. He said that he would have failed had he taken it with anyone else, and that he was recommending that his friends try to take it from me. (I don't currently know if/when I'll be teaching it again.) What a nice compliment! (I feel that the other profs probably do a better job of it, but it's nice to hear that someone liked the job I had done.)

How wonderful! It is rare that teachers get to hear positive things!
