Stuff You Can't Say To Your Teacher - Taylor Payne


Homework? Tests? Quizzes? Labs?

Is all this really necessary?

I mean, it's not like we have all the time in the world to do this stuff.

We have lives too.

Flipping burgers, organizing racks, and community service?

Wow. A lot would change if I were a teacher.

If I were to teach you, there would be no heavy load of homework.

There would be no quizzes or tests. We would work on changing the world..

One student at a time, starting with you.

I understand you have a family to support, kids to feed, and bills to pay

But if that's the case, why is it always homework that you raise?

Please give me this scholarship. It's the last chance that I have.

To become one of the worlds best teachers, and introduce the future generation with class
