How does Mike do it?

Teaching is seriously hard work. Anybody who says otherwise is a moron. You go from kids calling each other whores to kids that love to learn and know what "fashion victim" means in the same minute. Sometimes it's all yelling and discipline. Others it's pure elation at the difference you are making in some kid's life. Oi!

i may come to you for some teaching advice, as i will be subbing at the Loneman Middle School for the next three weeks. so is a backhand slap across the face the most suitable form of punishment, or do you prefer a rapping across the knuckles with a ruler? ah, to each his own...we got your cute letter. just cute.

Freakin' right on, Nick. Teaching is hard.

Eric told me about your blog. I'm psyched.
