Five years ago this month, as I was being interviewed by my school principal and Alfred Thompson as they tried to see if I could teach computers (I was coming in from industry, never having taught before), the principal asked me how I’d handle a hypothetical situation. What would I do, he asked, if no matter how many times I explained something, one student just didn’t seem to get it. I looked at him with a face that was a mixture of fear and confusion and asked, "My mother is going to be in the class??"
It really is nice to see some things never change.
(Yes, mom, I love you too!)
