Teaching with Reading Mrs. Creasy

In my Teaching With Writing course, we had a journal. Our teacher Mrs. Creasy made it very clear on the first class that in order to teach writing we had to write ourselves. In this journal we could write about anything we wanted. For some of us, that freedom became overwhelming because we are used to teachers telling us what to write about. Surprisingly, I started to enjoy writing in my journal and it became my way to express my feelings, doubts and my personal opinions on a day-to-day basis. Every time we turned them in I got feedback from my teacher motivating me to keep writing. I new that she read every single page because she always wrote a message.

On the last day of the semester, we got our journals back and I was surprised to find a little note. After reading it, tears ran down face, of happiness and sadness. Some teachers will touch your heart, with a smile or a small gesture. She was one of them. Thank you Mrs. Creasy!
