the problem is, I'm not sure I can.
This morning, at breakfast, one of my colleagues mentioned that she has a real problem with the students: they have nothing to say. "I have [subject] with you next period" is their idea of conversation. She's sick of it and them.
Of course, that got me wondering. I have a good relationship with most of the students. Does that mean that I, too have nothing to say? Or does it mean that the bar I set for good conversation is that much lower?
Until I figure it out, I think I'll stay quiet.
