Getting ready for another Tuesday night class

Getting ready for my Tuesday night Community College classes, and am reminded how important these classes are to those who are taking them. This year I started accepting dialog journals from the students where I comment, make suggestions about their learning, and ask questions. One student who writes more than average often comments about her day, and it’s obvious that she has loads of things she has to do, like taking care of two aging parents who need frequent hospitalization, visits to the hospital, and constant care, but she takes time every Tuesday to come to class and learn some English, because it’s important to her. She could be doing anything, like soaking in a hot bath, watching a television program, or unwinding in some other way, but she comes to my English class.

We’re going to have the best class ever tonight.
