(Just to remind my dear readers, we are sitting in this typical teacher’s lounge, waiting to see the assistant principal about a student who was suspended from a bus this morning. And we are gossiping.)
Me: Remember how we were saying that Anne’s student teacher was NEVER going to make it?
You: The quiet, gentle-looking one who will most certainly get run over by her students?
Me: Yeah, her.
Me: I have changed my mind. She could make it after all.
You: What are you talking about?
Me: I found someone who looks just like her. Go to this blog (Charlotte Hoather) and listen to her sing. She has The Voice. We were judging a book by its cover: the student teacher could make it.
You: You’re nuts.
Me: Seriously, if she has The Voice, she will make it. Any grade level, any school.
Assistant principal: Are you ladies ready?
