It was the last day before spring break, and I was covering an Earth Science class (more on that on Friday). Of course they asked me to cover another class on my prep period. Luckily it was two doors down and across the way. And it was a math class. A freshman math class.
It had a few too many familiar faces. Not in a good way. Including Vaughn...
Surprisingly, they settled right away, let me give them instructions, and then they got right to work.
So, it was one of those days where I circulated and waited for students who needed my help. A few were having difficulty with the assignment, but of course, they didn't want my help.
It was a geometry problem. Triangles. Two students were debating whether or not they had set up the problem correctly. Even though I was there, they didn't ask me.
Vaughn dutifully came over to them, looked over their problem, and told them it wasn't set up correctly. (It was close. It only needed a minor tweak.)
He was correct. (If he hadn't been, I would have said something.) Okay, fine. My help wasn't needed.
Sometimes I get to sit back and relax.
Who was your go to person to ask for help in classes? If you're doing A to Z, what was your P word for today?
