First, it’s important that you understand that as a teacher I try my hardest to help my students succeed.
Yesterday, one of my top students asked me what I was going to do for Halloween. I told him that I planned on staying home and passing out candy. Then he asked if I was going to dress up. “No,” I said, “every Halloween is the same; I always just go as myself.”
Later in the hall, I overhead this once bright student tell another student, “Teacher goes as a witch every Halloween.”
It makes me sad to see a student’s grade plummet like that.
Thankfully, I had lots of chocolate at home to console myself.
