Melted my Cold, Black Heart

This year I'm having the kids write down weekly personal goals along with the class goals (read "State Standards"). I write one up for myself and even give myself stickers during class when I accomplish my goal.

On Friday I happened to see a student's agenda opened to the calendar section where she had put a smiley sticker on each day of the week. "What's that?" I asked. "Oh, Mrs. N.," she answered, "I bought stickers and every time I do my homework I give myself a sticker, just like you."

That was the cutest thing! I wish I could put it in my golden box. I'll just have to settle for a warm-fuzzy memory instead.
