Each year, I start a new positive feedback repository. These little notes from students help me to remember why it is that I do as much as I can to help my students be successful and gain the useful skills they need to be better future students and create a better future for themselves. This can be tough at times – especially when pulling late, long hours reading essay after essay, trying to give detailed and specific feedback.

Keeping these little notes from my students helps me remember why I work so hard, and helps me to understand the influence I make on students. In 2022, I had 32 students leave me comments.

Student 1: I love the feedback my peer and instructor gave they gave me insight to help me become a better writer

Best of luck with your students next term!

Student 12: With this being the last assignment submission, I’d just like to say thank you for everything you’ve done for myself and the rest of the class over the last eight weeks! I’m not going to lie, I was really nervous taking this class again, so I’m glad I could really buckle down and keep up this time around. With this being said, I couldn’t help but realize it seems like one of my peers had a similar fate this semester. I really feel for him and I hope he can nail it a second time around, or that he does well in whatever he decides to do! Now I feel as though I’m rambling kind of, so I’ll close with another thank you for everything! 🙂
