The muffin saga continues:
Student: I was going to bring you a muffin today, but my dog ate them all.
I think this is the first time I've gotten "my dog at my homework" from a student. His entire grade [that I have no actual control over] now depends on him bringing me a muffin and signed apology letter from his dog tomorrow.
I have been teaching music across the Twin Cities since 2011. Along with seeing students grow as musicians and people, one of the joys of teaching is the ridiculous things my students say.
