I had my last class with these nine sixth graders Tuesday afternoon. Before I began class and before their homeroom teacher joined us one of those boys was excited to tell me that he has a girlfriend and she is a fifth grader.
I then demanded that he tell me all about her, in English.
I learned that her hair is not long and not short, presumably it is somewhere in the middle. She is also tall and happy.
Then their homeroom teacher came into the classroom and my questioning felt awkward.
