My students write me Weekly Letters about our current novel in my class. Yesterday, instead of writing about “A Lesson Before Dying,” one of my boys wrote me this instead:

“Dear Ms. Graham, I need help because i do not get this so can u help me please. I do not want to fail this class i need help. I don’t think im learning nothing in this class this is Just my opinion I don’t want to make u feel bad but im just say what i think is right can i come to u 1 day after school.”

Maybe I should start a collection called “Kid, You Secretly Remind Me Why I’m Doing This” ??
