What a Great Group
We started with a much bigger class, but these die-hards stuck with me to the end. And I worked them to the bone -- write, write, write, and then write some more. They wrote some absolutely beautiful papers for me. We waded our way through short story analysis and argumentative research papers and personal narratives and everything else in between. What a great group for a discussion. It's times like these when I am so happy that I conduct class in a circle. They will soar wihen they get to college. As Baudelaire said, "Always be a poet, even in prose."
My wish for you, my students: An ever vigilant and patient guardian angel on each of your shoulders for all the years to come. Hugs from Mrs. Pauley to each of you.
