One of my former students just came by, and I'm the one with tears in my eyes and not the other way around. Tears of being touched and happy, though, not the tears of anxiety that students usually have.
It was a student of mine from last semester, and she stopped by because she wanted me to know that she learned more in my class than in any other class at this university. She actually thanked me for the class. If I remember correctly, she's a senior.
