Shaking my head

A student was being particularly annoying, so I told him to cease and desist. He asked me what language that was.

A teacher has the following on her wall. In her handwriting: "Immigrants leave their country's and move to the United States." "Students come to the school and talk to the principle." "Numonics can help you learn"


Both are native born, native speakers.

A few weeks ago I spoke to a woman who ran a tutoring center, a woman our age. She could not believe the spelling and grammar on worksheets given to students. But, us old teachers don't know anything about teaching.
