I just LOVE my students. Two of them just left my class. They are little stress cases. I just gave the biggest pep talk for the upcoming AP exam. I love how grateful and happy they are. They try so hard and I give them so much homework. SO much homework. For some reason, they are just all smiles anyway. How does that happen?
In other news, today, during our activity period, I had my AP kids come in to watch a ridiculously boring movie about supranationalism, devolution, and apartheid. When asked (sincerely) how one gets AIDS, I responded that it can be transmitted by blood transfusion, sharing needles, and "sleeping together." This kid got the BIGGEST eyes and said, "You can get AIDS by just sleeping in the same room as someone!?! Breathing in the same room?" Oh man. I love my job.
