Still, I'm thankful for those letters I received. Some of them surprised me since they are from those students who aren't as vocal about their feelings and opinions. And, I'm glad I gave them a chance to make someone's day in a way that was comfortable for them.

One of my students wrote me this letter.

*Ms. Hagan*

*Thank you so much for teaching me math. You are the best math teacher ever. I never learned math as easy as you teach us. I have never had this good of a grade in math. I hope I have you ever year till I graduate. Thank you for everything.*

This is why I teach. This is why I'm at school this week even though I don't feel 100%. This is why I spend hours creating games and foldables and activities for my students. My students need me. I am making a difference in their lives. And, they are making a difference in my life.
