Isn't it funny how the students with the worst mouths in front of their
peers suddenly become embarrased when speaking in front of an adult. I also
find that happens in my class. Words that flow out in the hall suddenly are
hard or embarrassing to say in front of me. I wonder what the parents would
say if we could just tape record a few minutes in the halls.
