Nothing makes me feel old quite like out-of-date references I make while teaching and the blank, blinking eyes and silence which meet me in return. I used to be cool.
Anyway, I hope you have a happy new year tonight. Be safe. 🙂
This is what we were dealing with last week…now, everyone is happy to be on vacation. Except maybe parents who aren’t used to being around their children all day. 🙂
I’m sorry…I just can’t help it. It’s a natural instinct. I can’t stop correcting other people’s grammar. I do it out loud. I do it to their faces. If someone gets irritated with me, I can stop doing it verbally, but it still resonates in my brain. Is this some kind of disorder? Maybe I will Google it and see.
Have you ever spent time reaching out to a student to show you care, and told him all about your life in hopes of teaching him some lesson through your mistakes that might help him in his own life, only to have him take out his earbuds indicating that he had not heard a word you said? Me, either. Boy, that would be embarrassing…
