i just wanted to add another update to yesterday's post, for i have felt badly about the way i portrayed my students.
in her defense, pbf said some of the most intelligent things in class yesterday- there were some things in our lesson that none of the students knew of, but she used context to correctly guess what the term meant. she is delightful and fun.
and, apf has one of the top grades in my class and is a bright student.
yesterday wasn't a banner day, but hey, everyone has their moments...
