They say confession is good for the soul. Well, here’s my confession: today in class, I pulled a knife on one of my students. Intentionally.
In my defense, let it be known to one and all that he did volunteer, although I didn’t exactly tell him beforehand what he was volunteering for…
Of course, the reason for pulling the knife was a teaching example to make a point for the class, and to make it memorable. (I think I succeeded at that.) The moral of today’s story? When I’m teaching, pay attention in class and be careful what you volunteer for. 😉
p.s. No students were actually harmed in the course of my teaching.
