Minor Irritations

All the headaches that accompany teaching are nothing compared to the real tragedies people face, says CaliforniaTeacherGuy. Reflecting on the devastation of the California wildfires, he puts his classroom aggravations in perspective:

As I meditate on the firestorms sweeping across my land, I think I can put up with a few minor irritants in my classroom tomorrow. Irritants are normal. Firestorms are not. Give me the normal, not the aberration.

Now, the chatty students and neglected homework assignments don’t seem so bad.
