It's that time of year again. "Can you give me (insert higher grade here)?" I hear war stories about this all the time, but fortunately I don't feel pressured to deal with that question. Maybe I'm asked that question as much as other teachers and I just say "no" and that's the end or it, or maybe I have trained my students not even to try. Whatever, it's not a problem for me.
And for this I'm thankful.
