Ooh! MUST share this. Just found out that a certain boy in one of the classes I teach is sweet on a certain girl in another of my classes. How TOUCHING! It becomes even more exciting when you find out that the boy in question is- how do I put this without breaking my non-disclosure clause? Well, let’s just say that his name is very often on teachers’ lips. My hope is that the girl can be a positive influence on her beau. He is a great guy- smart and well liked by his friends- so I hope that his special friend can make sure that he gets on the right track and shows all of us just how much he can achieve.
In another class today, everyone looked very morose, ostensibly because of poor results in a certain test. Cheer up guys. They’re just marks. More important is what you learn from the experience. Three sayings that always keep me going:
If there was some other reason for the general atmosphere of doom and gloom, then tell me about it when next we meet. I can’t bear it when my children are unhappy.
