The rewards of teaching

Got my evaluations from this past academic year today.  Here are my two favourite comments (so far).  They demonstrate the range of experiences.

"Thank you for helping to kill the joy I used to experience while reading and writing."  Really?  It was only a composition class!  My power is greater than I know.

"You are a unicorn maiden."  Finally someone recognizes me for what I am.

I swear both of these were actual comments made by students I taught.


  1. Awesome! The power of illusion, from both sides of the coin. that's at the heart of creative expression, isn't it? -Artemis (busy trying to incorporate unicorn maiden into pre-existing Amazon framework...)

  2. That's hilarious..... Kids..
