Heard this Today

Standard

Today during my planning, a student stopped in to talk about his grades.  Anxious to bring up all of his grades, he asked to redo assignments, write an essay, extra credit, ANYTHING.  Now, this kid is nice, helpful in class, but not one to go the extra mile.  After offering a few options and a pat on the back, I pried. Why the new interest? “My grandma smokes a lot. She keeps telling she’ll quit when I get As and Bs. I hate her smoking. I’m the only one that cares.”

Geez Grandma! Just quit! This kid cares so deeply for you and you are failing to see it.

I am so proud of this kid. I love my job!
