I’ve been using a pretty serious tough-love approach with my freshmen. Today was there first test and one kid could not keep his mouth shut (to his credit, he wasn’t cheating, he is just unable to stay quiet), so I used my tough love to remind him it was inappropriate to be talking during a test. I never expected what came next:
“Dang, Miss. You’re mean.”
Ha, those of you who know me know it’s a stretch for me to even try to be mean. In a twisted way, this was a huge victory today.
I’m celebrating by getting ready for a match rocket lab tomorrow and an early bed time :)
