One of the math teachers at our school received the following email from a student two days after a major project was due:

Dear Mr. Math Teacher,

I have finished my project. I would send it to you, but my internet is down, so I will have to give it to you tomorrow.

Your Favorite (and smartest) math student

Last weekend, after a week of being snowed in, we decided to head up to New York City. It was awesome.

We spent a lot of time in Times Square

Bought cheesy I Love NY t-shirts

Ate some really good food

and went to the top of the Empire State Building. (Since it was Valentine's day and all. Meg Ryan was not there. Neither was Tom Hanks. Such a let-down.)

things i love:

Since it was valentines day and all....

Mostly I just love the snow. Simply because I had 6 snow days that (we have been told in secret) we will not have to make up at the end of the year.

I also love that my mom sent me a valentines card with the word "ass" on it. Hehe. Thanks, mom!

Dear Mabel,

Let's make a deal. I'll visit you if you visit me.

I'll take you to the Zoo and the National Children's Museum and we can have a picnic by the river. It'll be awesome.

Let me know what you think.


PS - Don't let your mom bribe you. You can ask for me to come visit any time.

good news

I don't have school today, because DC doesn't know how to plow streets. Reason #452 I am in love with DC.

We also don't have school tomorrow.

And we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow night.

Bad news: I was supposed to go sledding today, but everyone bailed. We're going bowling instead. I have lame friends. (I like them anyway)

So one of my students is missing two weeks of class to kayak in Costa Rica.

Her parents made me cupcakes to make up for it.

They are the best cupcakes I have ever eaten in my life. I stole one of her math teacher's cupcakes. He doesn't know what he's missing out on.
