Things that keep you going

I was at a language teachers conference last week and left my kids a pop quiz and a reading assignment with 8 questions all in French. Today when we corrected them, the scores were about where they should be according to the 80/80 rule, but for me the payoff came from a comment from one of the kids. After we finished correcting the reading, I was thinking that a year ago, I could have never left a reading assignment with the questions all in French for my French 1 (or my French 2 classes). I made a comment to that effect and one of the kids said, "yeah, we actually get French."

That put enough gas in my tank for some time to come.
