I saw when you plugged in someone else's computer.
I saw when you picked up a stray piece of trash.
I noticed when you apologized for being in the way.
I noticed when you complimented your friend.
I noticed when you thanked a peer for their kindness.
I loved watching your creative mind at work.
I loved seeing you struggle through and conquer a difficult math problem.
I loved it when you entered the classroom and smiled.
I appreciated your comments about someone else's idea.
I appreciated your response to someone else's feelings.
I appreciated your ability to reach out to someone in need.
