Best compliment this week


One of my AP kids said to me: "Wow, you know what? I learned something! I learned how to pace myself doing this assignment, and it wasn't so bad if I did a bit of it each night! Thanks, Ms. Cornelius!" And he wasn't being facetious. He may never remember why the colonists took such umbrage at the Quebec Act, but he's learned to pace himself.

Can I retire for the rest of the year? No? Rats.

(Second place goes to the girl who stopped me on cafeteria duty and speculated that I got this duty because of my, and I quote, "mad martial arts skillz (pronounced, for those of you not in the know, as 'SKEEEEEYILS')."

Dude. I'm touched.
