I met my 8th grade students today. In my last class of the day, I learned of a local celebrity that I will be teaching this year. I’m not really sure what I’m going to be doing with him. He is already set to take sophomore math and science classes and is only in 8th grade at a school that produced 35 National Merit Semifinalists last year (class of 2009), which placed the high school in the top 30 high schools in the US.
I think I’m going to have to be doing some serious praying this year.
