While reading essays it is so obvious which students in my classes will be writing letters like this in their future. Isn't it funny how our priorities in middle school shape our futures? When I stayed late at work Friday night calling home to all of the parents of kids with missing essays, I had no idea I would stumble upon such perfect snark while surfing the internet (instead of grading like I'm supposed to). I spent much of my middle and high school years stuck in a book. What were your priorities in middle school?
