I've been at this a while, but you, dear up and coming teacher, should know that your career can take some turns. One direction is burn out and sadness. The other direction might lead you here:

I'm not sure if it's a direction you knew was possible. Is this the success of good relationship building? No idea. I hope so? There was lots of good work on this paper, and this student is a super hard worker. I really didn't know what to say. I did eat the cheeto, not that it affected anything. I can't be bought that easily.

How do you communicate the idea of building a classroom where a student feels safe taping a cheeto to their test knowing that you won't have a problem with it?
