the only thing i hear right now are pencils scraping paper and the occasional eraser.
my ap class is taking a test.
it's one of my favorite things. i love to just sit and listen and watch. they're all so intense. it makes me so proud to be their teacher when i can see their diligence. they stress over every question, every plus sign, every negative sign. (and they should. the test is over integers!)
sometimes, i'll look around and see a child with his hands on his head because he's so baffled by the present question. then, it's like there's literally a light bulb above his head. aha!
it's the greatest feeling to know that i had a part in that light.
so for the next few minutes, i'm going to enjoy the sweet sound of pencils.
and then back to reality when 5th period rolls around.
