You Are My Favorite Teacher !

Shortly before Christmas break during finals week, a young girl, one of my students, stayed after class. She skipped up to me and gushed, "You are my FAVORITE teacher, Mr. Houtchens!" I was flattered and honored.

"Thank you so much!" I replied. "That means a lot to me."

"Can I have a Jolly Rancher?" she asked.

"No," I replied.

"Never mind," she said as she bounced out of the classroom.
