Hey guys (which includes girls too, naturally)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I saw something today and wanted to let you in on it!!! I thought it was incredibly applicable considering what Sister Morgan always tells us!! Here it is!!
"Cut out all the exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke." --F. Scott Fitzgerald
Okay, sorry for my lame joke. That's what happens when you spend a day with a bunch of teenagers. I must say, though, it's kind of fun to look at them moan in anguish at an assignment I give them. Today I mimicked one kid and said, "Oh, it's horrible, isn't it? Learning at school. Go figure." I may get fired before I'm even hired.
To the rest of you student teachers and teacher-teachers (EMPO, OUR BRIGHT SHINING STAR OF HOPE), I'm glad to not be alone in this :) Any suggestions? I'm teaching Macbeth and Les Miserables and Grammar and a Shakespeare course.
Oh yeah, Sister Morgan, now would be a wonderful time to have my jump drive with all of your brilliant Writing Center powerpoints and writing prompts on it. But don't worry about it. Seriously. Even though it's my birthday this week and I'm a million miles away from you. It's no problem. :) Sorry--just a little more teenage sarcasm for you.
Miss you all.
