General Notes Professional notes on my teaching, or notes/comments from students. This is a note one of my students wrote and gave to me on the last day. I almost cried. Especially after hearing some negative words from a parent at conferences, this was the support and encouragement I needed! Such a small thing that made such a huge difference! I realized that what I do really does have an impact! A silly and sweet note from one of my students in English 10. A note from a substitute teacher at Mason City High School, commenting on my student teaching performance.
