How long have you been teaching? How long at Poplin? I have been teaching for 20 years and this is my first year at Poplin.
What is the funniest thing a student has said to you? During writing, a student asked me how to spell Michael. I thought he was referring to Michael Jackson, as he was currently in the news. I asked him what he was writing about and he replied, "I popped my popcorn in the Michael-wave".
