Something Snapped

It was a typical morning and I was in the midst of the quietest class I taught. It was quite different that day though. When I would enter the classroom, they would soon pay attention. That morning they were not. In fact, they were talking loudly in contrast to what I would tell them that … Continue reading Something Snapped

I Refused to Comply
