I am a teacher.
Every year I do home visits to each of my students.
The purpose of these visits are not only to meet my students, but to drop off a few items to get to know them a little bit better before the school year starts.
Usually I do these during the dog-days-sweltering-heat-when-you-shouldn’t-be-out-wearing-a-tie-because-it’s-hot-enough-to-melt-lead part of the year, and not very enjoyable to be honest…but how can one not relish the thrill that comes when your up-and-coming students see you waiting out on their front doorstep and shriek like they’re at a Justin Bieber concert?
For some of them it’s like Christmas come early.
Of course, it’s an experience like THIS that make it the mixed bag that just kind of makes you…well, just laugh.
Like I said, I am a teacher.
