High School

“In high school I wrote an essay on baseball and my teacher told me I had to rewrite it on a more serious topic. So I wrote an essay about the World Series and my teacher gave up.”
Tucker Elliot


I had a similar experience in high school taking the same approach but on a different topic. The teacher gave me a passing score for adhering to the rewrite directions literally. Then that teacher removed her rewrite policy in total – you only got one chance after that. It was probably the only time in high school I actually made a difference! Does that count when it is a negative?
