The little things we say, and do.

“That’s good, Amita…..no, it really is”.
A student of mine, who is not the most confident of young people, tells me that she has remembered me saying the above to her several years ago. She has held onto this as a positive in her life and it has helped her through some difficult times.
Do we realise the impact we can have as teachers?
I guess I will have said some negative things that will have had a negative impact. Should I feel guilty about those?
Is it possible always to impact positively?
