day 747 – successes of an instructor

today i received a thank you note from a student i have been teaching and mentoring for the last several years. the note had high praise and reinforces why i have been and still continue to teach to this day. it truly defines why i make the sacrifices to teach because nothing warms my heart than to see my students perform and meet their goals. although she never became a blackbelt, there was a lot that she did right, more than what the black belt itself may have exemplified. i am truly appreciative of all the time and effort she put into assisting junior students and practicing for herself, and wish her the best of luck in her studies
