This was a note left by a Substitute Teacher who had subbed for my 9th grade Science class back in 2007. This was only a couple months into the school year and as my educational philosophy is to build Leaders, not just teach kids “stuff”, they apparently had been great Leader students for this Sub to have written such an awesome note to me. This note is one of my personal best teaching highlights because we all know how horrible kids, especially 9th graders from a disadvantaged community, can be to their Substitutes. :-)
