Student quote of the day

Sept. 10, 2008

Quote from a student who was quite a struggle last year. He came back and flattered me with a guised insult.

"Yo Mr. Sundberg, this year is going great!"

"Really? Why's that?"

"Well, first off, you got funnier and your hair got....well, better."

Andrew, I stumbled across your blog while looking through Nina's and the Roddy's blogs. I've loved reading your teaching posts. As a 1st grade teacher I know what it's like to pour yourself into your kiddos and classroom. I really admire what you're doing in NYC! Teaching is no easy profession. Especially when you have kids that give you compliments like the one you posted here! Ha! I can't tell you how many times my 1st graders have come up with compliments like the one you just posted... last year when I was pregnant those "compliments" were the best! They were always so kind to point out how "big" I was getting! Ha! :) Anyway... keep doing what you do - it sounds like you're an amazing teacher and that doing wonderful things!
