I had applied at every nearby school district, but hadn't even landed an interview. I show up at a high school I wanted to work at, decked out in sweats. I notified the office that I would be hanging out at the school all day, so if they needed a substitute, I would oblige. The receptionist gave me a weary look. Geoff is a new teacher at the school, I am happy to see him and sit in on his class, as a student. Tons of students pour in, there must be 50 in the class. They are restless, and pass notes through out the class; they can't seem to focus. Geoff's classroom is bare, there isn't anything on the walls, but I see happen upon an open cupboard, and it's filled with drawings and notes from me.
He plays videos that he made himself the whole class period, but I don't even know what subject he is teaching, and I fall asleep on a desk.
When I wake up, all of the students are gone and Geoff looks defeated. His eyes well up with tears and asks he asks me how he can do better next time. I counsel him on how to make students use all parts of the brain. There was running commentary going on in my mind as if I were awake.
