Why I do what I do

Just finished English 11, and one of my "average" students stayed behind to discuss something she'd found online while looking for some supplementary material(!) about Of Mice and Men on her own(!). She made some good connections and asked some good questions, and as she left she said, "This book is really sad, but it's good. It's like real life." This is why I teach.

That's pretty cool.

NABLOPOMO, huh? I always forget when that thing starts.

Hmmmm. Funny how life repeats itself. This average student remembers discovering John Steinbeck's TRAVELS WITH CHARLIE.
