After school today, a couple of my girls in pom came to work on the calculus that they’ll be missing in the coming days due to Nationals. These two girls are both extremely bright and honestly enjoy doing math. I gave them an abbreviated lesson and then off they went, asking questions as they needed.
It’s a small thing, but I just really liked having them in my room and hearing them discuss math together. It’s clear they cherish each other’s friendship and value their education. I had had a semi-difficult last period of the day, so I was thankful for their company and positivity: they helped my day end on a good note.
