I was delighted to stumble upon this wonderful post by a high school English teacher. As it turns out, my students aren’t the only ones who think starting a “random” conversation will save them from doing actual work. And, I am not the only teacher who believes the tangents are worth the time.

You see, (I won’t go so far as to insert any of the student names here. . .), I know what you are doing. The joke is on you!
Thanks, Mrs. Roberson. You rock!!
