You teach high school freshman? What a coincidence, I pity people who endore High school freshman!
Just joking, hey sinnamon.
Oh, the kids I can handle. The kids are usually great, & when they are buttholes, they're usually great the next time I see them. It's the damn grown-ups I can't stand. Usually a parent or admin that's a jerk stays a jerk.
Ummm, no I promise not to do that. Although every time I see someone use "loose" for "lose" I die a little inside. And... I must admit I don't take ths ppl who uz txt spk vry srsly.
I teach advanced high school freshman.
LOL! (I have a hard time with that, too!)
I've got my little pet peeves, too, especially when I'm driving down the road and a word is misspelled on a business sign. On the inside I'm thinking, "I'm not doing business with you! You can't even spell!"
Mrs. Shapiro was my 9th grade English grammar teacher. She was hard to please and we suspected, just a little senile. She taught me that it's "a lot" not "alot". I wish I had better understood diagramming sentences.
