one of the new adult students in my english conversation and language class remarked to me after class late night, "this class is for me a dream come true. i've been looking all over the city for something like this." my response - "if you found the class useful, it might be because you were so eager to learn. it was you, not me, taking those 3 page of notes."
it's moving hearing that kind of feedback. i need to figure out ways of getting such learning/teaching onto video and other media to reach learners not able to make it to class.
