Today was the end of the semester. And two of my students — one in each of the precalculus classes — are going to be doing semester away programs. Since I wanted to acknowledge their departure, I decided at the last minute yesterday that I would bake cupcakes. So I left school late, bought the the mix and frosting, and then made the cupcakes. By the time I was done, I was exhausted. Who knew box mixes were so arduous when making a double batch.
I frosted them at school. Put a pretzel m&m on it.
No, this isn’t one good thing about teaching or that happened to me. Yes, this is one good thing that I did. So sue me.
