I get to teach great students. Here is an exchange between myself and one of those students that I like — a great deal.
Conversation between Carson and Student:
Student: You are one of the best teachers here.
Me: Thank you!
Student: I really mean it. You are the best black teacher here.
Me: I am the only black teacher here.
Student: See I am right. You are the best.
That was last week. Here is the other day from the same student.
Student: I do not get why some people think you are cocky. I don’t.
Me: Thank you.
Student: You are just too dorky and nerdy to be arrogant.
Me: Gee thanks again. Gotta love my students.
