A good teacher :)

Yesterday a student told me, after a discussion of other teachers in a Personal Tutorial session, that I was “a good teacher”.

Aww… That is always nice. The obvious reaction is- “Oh yes, do tell me more…” But you have to hold that reaction in – can’t appear too eager. Instead you give a restrained smile, say thank you, and usher them out the door before you start grinning.

I had it from other students the previous week. They rather undercut their message of appreciation though by afterward saying- “You’re the only teacher who lets us go early.”


I’ll take it.
