You earned your grade.

You earned it when you spent time or didn't spend time on the research paper.

You earned it when you came to class or stayed away.

You earned it when you handed in all the essays or did not, and when you rewrote some of them or chose not to.

I did not earn your grade.

Goodbye and good luck to all of my students. You have enriched my life and I am better for knowing you.

So true in life as well as school!
