Revenge Is Sweet
The kids took the second half of the geometry midterm yesterday. They felt confident and did surprisingly well. In class today, all I heard was,"Ms, did you mark the exams?" When I replied "Yes" I got the follow up question "Can you tell me what I got?"
I kept my cool and replied, "NO!!!!! You guys tortured me all term and now I get my revenge. You have to wait until Monday to find out your score." They begged and pleaded. They needed the grade to get out of punishments. I did not budge. They said, "Why are you making us suffer?" I just said "Revenge is sweet."
I gave them a practice sheet for our "Second Chance Harvey" exam on Monday. They actually worked hard on it. The sick part of me is looking forward to preparing them for the regents in June. It should be a wild and interesting ride.
