Breakfast of Champions

Today in #teacherlife…a student brought me breakfast. A delicious bodega breakfast.

This is not a student who is failing, has a poor grade, or needs to suck up in any way. She said, “Ms. Turman, I was getting my sandwich and I thought of you. This is the first time I have enjoyed English in a long time. I am glad that you came here.”

My thug tears overflowed, in the bathroom, away from the chilluns. Said breakfast was delicious as a mug.
