Confused and Cautiously Optimistic

OK, I don't know what's going on here, but I'm grading final essays in my literature course, and five essays in a row are just brilliant. I was dreading this round of grading because I fully expected a fresh batch of "Cervantes would be an OK writer if only his characters were less weird" kind of statements. But these essays are phenomenal. At least, the five I have read so far are.

Is it possible that all my hard work paid off? I'm actually enjoying myself reading these essays. Wow.

P.S. As of now, I have graded 11 essays and loved all of them passionately. Am I a good teacher, or what?
