Parent-Teacher Conferences

Tonight was parent-teacher conferences. Not a lot of parents came to my room, but there were enough to make a fairly steady flow of conversations. I am fortunate to have some really great kids as students, so I did not stress about what to say to the parents who came through. What I was unprepared for, though, was how many parents complimented me. Things they said, beyond "this is ___'s favorite class", were consistently complimentary toward me:  
- feels like you listen to him
- feels like you talk on his/her level
- says you take the time to explain things
- trusts you.
My head is feeling a bit swelled. ;)
