I know I didn't teach for very long, only 3 years. But I spent six years learning to be a teacher. In that time I wrote many term papers and research papers. I understand syntax and making sure that sentences are understandable to strangers reading my work for the first time.
So why is it that every week Lainy Ann tells me that I don't understand what her homework is. Even when faced with the evidence that last weeks homework, that I helped her with, got an E, she still tells me I am wrong.
When did I become so dumb? Oh yeah, when I gave birth to her.
