Our kids have a way with words -- and a knack for compliments! We asked you to share the best compliment you've received from a student. The Top 5 are below, and congratulations to our giveaway prize winner, Joey Denoncourt at College View Elementary!
I thought P.E. teachers were supposed to be dumb, but I actually learn a lot from you!" -- Michael Whittlef, Castro Elementary
"In the middle of a guided reading group, a student looked up at me and said, 'Thank you.' I asked, 'What for?' She replied, 'Thank you for supporting me every day.'" -- Tasha Price, Columbian Elementary
Don't take this the wrong way because it really is a compliment, but you smell like my grandma." --
Jessica Buckmaster, Postsecondary Readiness
"It smells like smiles in your classroom!"
-- Allison Bracken, International Academy of Denver at Harrington
This drawing (right) came from one of my fourth-grade students. I appreciate the compliment, and had no idea she was evaluating my style every day! She encouraged me to step up my wardrobe and show up to school looking ready to teach!"
