Several years ago, I had a sub who went a bit above and beyond. She not only took up whatever assignment I’d left for that day – she organized the papers and completion-graded them. In other words, she noted who’d finished and seemed to have taken the work seriously. She didn’t give them a number or a letter grade, of course – that would have been bold. But she did give each paper meeting her requirements a sticker.
Hello. You don’t know me, you probably don’t even remember my name, but I’m your student. Every student, no matter how they behave, has a story. We all go through things we wish others would see.
Hey, you! Out there! My conservative friends - can we talk for a moment?
You lefties go save a whale or something for a minute, will you? No one can speak openly when you’re around, waiting to be offended by something, and I need to cover a few things with the grown-ups. Don’t you have some drugs to legalize or Christians to mock?
Are they gone?
