good things

today,

student C (a fifth grader that most middle-school teachers are afraid of) asked me if he could come in after school for guitar help. (we're doing guitar in 5th grade.)

we sat for an hour and did some guitar and some talking.

What a fantastic kid. Articulate, witty, funny, sweet.

He is an inspiration.

It goes to show: if you get to know a student, amazing things can happen.

Another thing: I am begging you, please, to keep the potato going.

Cela fait plaisir quand on peut sortir un gamin de l ' ornière par la musique et sans doute un don que tu as .

Je te remercie de ta confiance . Sais - tu que j ' ai été piraté sur Xanga il y a à peu pès un an . Quelqu 'un est entré dans mon ordinateur .Il avait trouvé mon mot de passe de Xanga . J ' ai dû faire appel à un xangan compétent et digne de confiance qui a éliminé tous les éléments agressifs laissés . J ' ai évidemment ensuite changé mon mot de passe .
Amitié à toi Emilie et bon Dimanche demain

Way cool. I wish I had a teacher like you when I was in middle school!

(Middle school was not a high point in my educational career) ;^)

That's really encouraging; a teacher must like moments like that.
