Today is the first day of summer school. I've only been teaching for three years. Every summer I've taught eager students who are well behaved.
This year I'm teaching all the students I failed during the school year, and at least one student who is interested in enrichment.
Every student who failed last year decided to fail. Not a single one tried, and then failed. This gives me hope that they can both pass and learn this summer.
That is... if we can get them into the classroom.
