Being a teacher is like simultaneously being the boss of a bunch of little workers, as well as acting as each one of their secretaries.
I mean it.
I hand out work, and sometimes different work to different workers. I need to make sure they are doing their work and discipline them when work is not completed on time (mostly by giving late grades).
But I am also bombarded with question after question about the work I give out. If it’s not “I don’t understand… can you explain the whole thing over again?” then it’s “I can’t find my work… can you help me find it and get it turned in, and maybe convince the boss to just let this one slide because it’s a fluke and will never happen again I swear…?”
I’ve got a class coming in soon, so I better go…
(I think that signature is proper English now. The hyphen may not be, but I’m pretty sure you put the comma there. YAY grammar!)
