first day back at school and i didn't kill myself (just kidding, i really DO love these kids. yeah, even THAT one). this is a good sign.
i won't bore y'all with the details, except this brief conversation between one of my students and me:
kid: hey, ms. banana, happy new year! i really missed you.
me: that so?
kid: uh, huh. you're the only teacher i missed.
kid: no, seriously.
me: you just want an A. well, you can't have one. flattery definitely isn't gonna get you there, neither.
kid: i already have an A, ms. banana.
me: hasn't the bell rung, yet?
