If I ever say I am jealous of the gifts some teachers receive, please slap me… hard. Not only is jealousy wrong, but I have nothing to be jealous of. Lately, people have given me so many compliments and so many gifts that I should learn to shut up once and for all.
Today, I arrived at work to find a bag of Brazilian coffee on my desk. This was a gift from one of my students who is a primary school teacher in Brazil. She was one of the bright spots in the class and I was quite touched by this. I think I will wait until the weekend when I have more time to savour my coffee.
