I had a student who once told me, “You can’t say that to me. My dad’s a lawyer. I’ll sue you!”
My response before I could censor myself was to laugh and say, “I’m a teacher. Sue away. I don’t make anything.”
And literally, that was the honest truth. The only thing he could have, gladly, was my growing mound of student debt.
