I had a former student come in today to say hello. He graduated 4 years ago, is about to graduate from college, is married, has a son, and is interviewing with Sony Television in a few weeks. Now, when I had him, he was not my top student, but he did what he needed and got out of here. When he was a student, are grading scale was the 7 point scale, instead of the 10 point, which we went to this year. I told him that, and he was shocked. I also told him that we now must accept late work, and some of the other policies that have been implemented this year. First off all, he thanked me for teaching him responsibility. Secondly, he said, "College is not going to get easier, and these kids are fooling themselves." It made me feel good, and I'm glad that even someone so recently in the same boat as these kids sees things the way I see it.
