I received this email this week from someone named azk3r. I shook my head, rolled my eyeballs and wrote him back with the usual encouragements and admonitions, and asked him to sign his real name in the future. Then in order to recharge my Teaching Is Fun brain cells, I forwarded it to my friend and colleague Judy, but with this, first:
deer mis cann,
i work reel hard in yer class but i still dont get it. i am a reel nice kid and hop that mssing yer class and not havin the book wont be a problem. thank you
student with no name
I about had a heart attack when I received this in my email box:
whadya mean his nam iz ask3r call him ask3r in ur class on monday
Oh no! I thought. I accidentally sent it BACK to him and one of his friends is taking me to task. Ack! Ack!
But then I checked out the email address and started laughing.
Judy had sent a reply.
My Teaching Is Fun brain cells are fully recharged now.
