Being Remembered by Students

I really work hard to initiate, nurture, develop and maintain a relationship with students. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But I am tickled if my former students remember me, even for silly reasons. I often refer to myself as Onigiriman--onigiri means rice ball. I am, I think, soft and mushy on the outside and easy to eat, but ultimately hard to swallow, as I ask student to do what I say if they expect a good grade in my class. For better or for worse, they do remember my as Onigiriman, as post on my facebook page reveal.

Oh well, I guess I'll take anything...
