Had a kid call me over to her seat today because she didn’t understand how to solve a problem on her assignment. I glanced at it, felt part of my soul die, and did my best to help her.
“Okay. The first problem here is that this is a true or false problem. Your answer is 3. Do you see why that’s wrong?”
I am fairly certain I have more white hair than I did when I left for work this morning, and I blame my students.
