Hey, It's One of My Former Students!

College students, not elementary.  COLLEGE.

Why do I get the feeling that might have been the result of an athletic scholarship?

Oh Sweet Baby Ray... I sympathize, sir, I sympathize.

I teach college freshmen in a cell biology course. My husband has learned to expect anything from whimpers of agony to actual shrieks of outrage during Lab Report Season. Did I mention they only have to write ONE lab report? Which they turn in section-by-section with plenty of EXTREMELY detailed instruction and hand-holding at every step? And the critique I get from them after all the help? "Please provide examples to follow." Stick a fork in me, seriously. I'm done.
