Do this, teachers, to feel better (and spread some encouragement)!

Usually when I am doing final grades in our computerized accounting system, I'm crunched for time and don't add comments.

Not so today.

So I'm adding a positive comment for each kid. So far, only one has been difficult. (Finally realized I could comment on her quiet demeanor, which can be quite a plus some days.)

Boy does it feel nice.

You might be a much more reliable commenter than I have been, and you're thinking I'm just getting to where I should have been long before. Guilty as charged.

If you're like me and usually bypassed the comments, however, I recommend it. It's really fun thinking back on each kid and dropping a little encourager, one of our most important roles.
