this teaching lark

in the same morning i get maximum stress from a pupil she has to change the time of her lesson, what am i going to do about it and starts bullying the girl whose lesson is about to start to swap lesson times with her,she can't oh yes you can and I have to intervene

then i get a couple of kids who are interested and keen, who ask intelligent questions and ask again when i, in normal flavio fashion, give them a confusing or contradictory instruction. And for a little while it is worth the while
