Seven Year Olds, I empathise

It’s funny how when you are put in their shoes, you suddenly arent so annoyed with their blank expressions anymore.

I am reading all these cases for lawschool and writing a paper. I must have written my professor ten times asking her about different issues with the paper. I feel so DUMB. And I think of my students who sit there when I ask what is a NOUN, and they stare at me as if they’ve never heard the word…. or will get it right orally and on the test, FLUNK……..

I feel your pain now. I empathise. I promise never to mentally go “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!?! 1 +1 = 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not 3, not 10, TWO” Because I’m sure i’m causing those sorts of pangs with my professor who is very patiently replying to each question I seem to find……….
