The Best Teacher Appreciation

Last week at our school, students completed "Apple Grams"-- short notes students could choose to write to a teacher.  I got the following:

“Mr. Turner,
Your class has brought great joy to our frontal lobes.  Our sympathetic nervous systems are always activated in your presence.  You are the terry-cloth mother to our rhesus monkeys, the Robin Williams to our DeNiro.
Forever Self-Actualized,
xxxxxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxxxxx”

That's the best appreciation a teacher can get.  They expressed thanks to me as a teacher, and managed to show me they'd learned something at the same time.  (In case you couldn't figure it out from the note, I teach AP Psychology).
