I was interested to find that, in retrospect, I may have actually said something useful to someone earlier today. That actually makes me pretty happy, since I always hope somewhere deep inside that I can do something helpful.
Suppose that’s the altruist in my fighting to get out.
Reading this was most certainly an upper after having a most sick-feeling day. I have started testing some of my students, and part of this is that I feel anxiety over causing them anxiety. Yes, I know that’s rather sad, but it’s the truth. Any other teachers out there freak out over giving their kids tests?
