Ok, come and burst my boasty bubble

It's not often that teachers get to boast about stuff, and there is no stealth about this:

I noticed a group of about 3 girls around my daughter (she is in the same school as me) and they were talking excitedly to her.

I found out afterwards that they were really happy with the way I had explained some stuff just moments earlier.'(I do not teach them)

My daughter was the star because I was the 'best maths' teacher in the school and I was her dad

I know it's bollocks. But it made me feel good, and I was so so pleased that my D's peers had said good things to her.

I want her to be proud of me in the school

Nice one, a great feeling. smile

You are being far too nice!

I know full well that this is only one pupil, andit certainly does not mean I m a good teacher

But it has made my day

There's no better feeling for a teacher than pupils genuinely enjoying learning something smile That's great, enjoy it and remember it.

Enjoy. Those are the moments that show you're in the right job. A lovely moment.

Keep hold of the good moments!

You should be pleased as punch.

Enjoy the feeling. Its nice to have something positive.

And remember it, just incase you do have the opposite one day - sadly it can happen to any of us, even if not justified.

Well thank you all! I was expecting some comments to tell me not to be so smug.

I think I want to minimise such a comment as they came through my own daughter.

But it's still great to hear; and I know there are legions of others out there who could benefit from a little positive feedback

Nope, those are the moments that make it worthwhile.

It's nice. Moments like that keep you going and make you remember why you do the job.

Good on you 👍

Bollocks: you clearly deserve the praise and it's fab that your daughter got to hear about it first hand.

I'm a huge supporter of teachers - you lot have a really tough career and judging by the teachers my two primary ages children have had, a lot of you are (despite the twats in government trying to grind you down) bloody ace.

Be proud!! star

101 shit comments and 1 good one. That's what keeps us going.

It's not bollocks. Today you made a difference to those students. They will remember that.
Your daughter will remember how it felt to be proud of her dad.
You sound bloody awesome!

Bask in your smug fest you deserve it!

No way am I bursting your bubble!
I hope you teach my kids one day.

Well done smile

I hope you teach my kids one day.

I think that is possibly the nicest compliment any teacher can receive.

Thank you Odessa, you would probably withdraw it in a second if you actually knew me, but it was a lovely comment

Lizzylou Mon 24-Oct-16 19:30:27

You boast away! Lovely for you and your DD to hear smile
It's so easy to forget the positive sometimes as a teacher but good feedback like that and girls going out of their way to tell your daughter, well that speaks volumes.
Well done.
