I just got an email from a student - she's sent me an official letter of complaint written to the Principal about one of my fellow English teachers. She doesn't have a printer, so wants me to print it out for her. She also thanks me for giving her the money to buy an emergency contraceptive pill yesterday.
This is followed up by a text from a student asking who Ganymede is. I tell him, and ask if he's studying the bit of the Classical Studies course relevent to the Greek gods.
No, he replies, he's at a pub quiz, but he'll probably study tomorrow.
Seriously, did I sleep through this lecture in teacher's college or something, because I'm pretty sure they should have told me about some of this stuff...
