In a note from one of his 6th grade students, this teacher found out that he's not fun, he's "fun-ish." Ouch.
Taking teacher appreciation to a somewhat patronizing level. (via imgur)
It's teacher appreciation week, and this math teacher (redditor roxothedog) received a seriously great note from one of his students. Here is the unedited text of the note:
"Dear Mr. _____
This week is a week to appreciat what our teachers have done for us. This letter is sent to one of my favorite teachers. Thanks for teaching us one of my favorite subjects. You teach in a fun-ish way which is one of the reason your one of my favorite teachers. You have a sense of humor that you express that other teachers would supress. You are sort of a man-child. Thanks for admitting for your mistakes, sometimes.

I'd really love to get my hands on the notes this student wrote to other teachers to see how the math teacher holds up against his peers. They'd be much more useful in judging teacher efficacy than standardized testing.
Also, I can't stop laughing at this line:
