One of my prodigy students makes me want to brag about her as if she were my own child.
My job is usually hilarious (teenagers have a really great sense of humor and most haven't lost the ability to play yet) and sometimes frustrating ("You failed a THIRD class?")
And sometimes, my students are so brilliant and perfect I can hardly comprehend it.
One of my sophomores just took the SATs for the first time and emailed me:
"I totally botched the SAT and ended up with a 2360. Should I take it again?"
For those as old as I am - the new SAT perfect score is 2400.
Let me remind you that this girl just turned 15.
IN YOUR FACE! (I need to brag about this because my own SAT scores were really low. I can now live vicariously through her as if I were her Chinese mom.)
