The feel good factor

September 17, 2008

Everybody likes to feel appreciated, and I am no exception.  Working with students in a library, many will give you a cursory thanks for help on the spot, but it is less common for them to come up to you days later to offer thanks for helping them with an assignment after it has been turned in.  When you get that kind of feedback, it is a strong motivator.  And so it was yesterday when a student came in to thank me and show me how well she had done on the assignment.  Yay!
