Post-it Praises

I came to BridgeWay late in the year and I slowly started learning about my student’s personalities, English levels, and family backgrounds. Before I had arrived in the school the teacher, Miss Bromley, dedicated five minutes of class to write “thankful notes.” Students were instructed to write whatever they were thankful for on a post-it and then paste it on the board. By the start of my time at BridgeWay, the board was almost completely covered with these small sheets of praises. One day, I approached a student and began a conversation. He was in 4th grade, his family had immigrated to Mexico from Colombia, and he loved eating waffles covered in caramel. He was sweet, smart, and very funny. I asked him what he had written on his post-it. He said, “I am thankful for my happy dad.”
