I just received the following email. It made me smile, so I thought I’d share.
— Hi Ms. Cummins, this is ______ from your 2B Geometry class. I was wondering, would it be worth my time to go back and complete the Classifying Triangles assignment, even if I have proven my knowledge on the subject with a perfect unit test grade? I want to know because my mother is unsatisfied with the current state of the assignment, and has taken drastic actions until the “problem”is resolved. Thank you for being an awesome geometry teacher, and before you ask, this is a serious question. —
I’m glad he felt comfortable asking me this, and I agree- it wouldn’t be worth his time. He demonstrated mastery on the unit test, so why bother with an old incomplete assignment?
Kids are the best.
