Found a note from a student on my desk last week. Those are always the best. It was all folded up and kind of hidden next to my favorite mug. I opened it up and this is what it said. . .
"I Love you mrs. bergland so much you set my soul and fire"
Despite the obvious problems with capitalization (really, I am teaching this in language), the lack of punctuation (which we also discuss in great length), and the use of the word and instead of on - I set her soul on fire??? How exactly do I do that? And even more scary - what does this child go home and tell her parents about me - that I'm setting children on fire in the classroom???
