Time to Make Some Resolutions (continued)
by John Pearson
I resolve to allow my students to use the restroom more often when they ask politely. I probably shouldn’t always wait until I see their eyeballs turning yellow before granting leave.
Finally, I resolve to bring this column to an end by not making any more resolutions! If you are reading this and care to share any of your own New Year’s resolutions, please feel free to add them to the comments.
Everyone be safe, don’t party too hard, and happy New Year to teachers, parents, students, and other readers alike!
