Trying to find math inside everything else


I was talking to some of the senior teachers today and I found out that two of my former students are going to Manhattan College, where my boyfriend is a professor. I don’t know why, but this is really exciting to me. I guess I’m just somewhat attached to my them as they were my first class and now they are graduating, but maybe somehow I can still keep tabs on them and help them out if they need it. (I told them if they take his class that I have access to his gradebook, wink wink.)

My boyfriend, on the other hand, said he would grade their exams right in front of me so he knows who to blame when they can’t do algebra. He can write on their tests, “Looks like Mr. Cleveland didn’t do a good job!”

But I’m sure they’ll do great. I’m pretty proud of them all.

  1. So you both teach math? My husband and I are both educators, but along very different lines. I taught elementary school, which basically means I taught all subjects. Tom, on the other hand, teaches a university-level genetics lab class. Come to think of it, at this point some of my very first students could actually be old enough to be in his class. Too bad we’d probably never know.
