in seriousness though: if you are an adult gatekeeper, don't warn teens off books because the books are "weird." you're perpetuating the very bullshit you probably got into this business to fight. teens want, and need, weird books. please don't get in the way

I forgot to hashtag Read to your students and stop at a cliff hanger. Perhaps a third on the letters i get are from students telling me how much they loved their teacher reading to them. and how they want more..and more...to read themselves

We were having none of that madness. (I have since changed my tune on this matter, and several others.)

We ate what our parents ate, with the exception of dressed salad - we got our own, dressing-free salad. Background is very Anglo Saxon.

Ha, maybe so! It's fine, nothing a couple of bandaids won't fix (including one administered by Small herself, bless her!). I just can't believe how stupid I was!

Little known fact: all editors have jars of extra, discarded commas from edits past. We can hook you up.

We have been teaching Small knife skills. Today I managed to break all the key rules we teach her: never put your hand in front of the knife; pay attention; don't rush. And, sure enough, I sliced my finger open. I'm fine, just marvelling at my own hypocrisy.
