|Turma 8G-- my favorite eighth grade class-- writing their final exam for biology|
Today is the final day of final tests, at the end of our final year of teaching in Mozambique.
In fact, this is a statement that truly bears repeating: Today is the final day of final tests, at the end of our final year of teaching Mozambique.
In terms of teaching, I am finished. I am done. Next week I'll be grading tests, returning them, and finalizing grades.
If you look at me closely, you'll see that I have tears in my eyes. But if you listen even closer, you'll hear a faint and barely audible-- hardly recognizable-- minuscule sigh of relief.
In honor of the last day of testing, I give you a funny answer written by one of my favorite students:
|By Fernando Nh. Augusto|
Question 1 (a): Give three differences between man and other mammals.
"Three differences between man and other mammals are that man takes a bath and changes his clothes. Other mammals don't know how to do what man does."
Ha. At least he's trying! Gosh, I'm going to miss these kids.
