Teaching Students

Most new acquaintances, when they learn that I teach in the public schools, ask me what I teach. I always answer simply and politely, “English,” but I hate that question and that answer. I teach students. I teach individual students, my students, not a subject matter or grade level.

I ought to change the way I answer. But so few care to see the difference.
