That moment when you realize that one of your students has better pickup lines than you ever did…. This little beauty was scribbled on my white board by one of my precocious sophomores.

One of the redeeming qualities of working in a school is interacting with all of the kids, especially the ones who mistakenly think that I’m cool. They keep me young. They give me great material. They force me to chase my own dreams as I encourage them to do the same.
