What Prom Is All About -- And Why Teachers Go

"Look for us in the stands at the next talent show or sporting event; teachers are easy to identify. We are the haggard, disheveled zombies clustered in isolation, gripping our enormous coffees and diet sodas, gossiping and griping more than our teenage students. (Don’t worry about the earnest, fresh-faced young woman sitting by herself who is simultaneously cheering, grading papers and crying — she is still new.)"

From Will Okun's blog about teaching on the West Side of Chicago.  Read all about it here.
