My class is a one semester class. We’ve been back in school since last Thursday, so today makes the fourth day I’ve had the majority of my students. Our librarian called me because she thought I’d want to know about an exchange between two of my new students, the gist of which was: they’re going to go to book club in the library today (book club has been every Tuesday in the library since September) because they like reading since they have my class.
I’d like to point out that we’ve only been reading independently since yesterday.
Those kinds of conversations (and the heckling of scared students watching the Skeleton Creek videos) make some of the hassle that goes along with this job totally worth it.
