I am writing this letter to the editor at 4 a.m. I always have a difficult time sleeping at night during the school year. Even after 20 years as a public school teacher, I often wake up sometime between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.
I have an underlying anxiety about my students. Each one is unique, diverse, has varied learning styles, human needs and sometimes difficult behavioral issues. The daily concern I have about them often disturbs my sleep.
Tonight I woke up thinking about the Utah State Legislature. I think it's time to give them a "letter grade" on performance. But even I have the common sense to know there would be no fair and best way to reflect this honestly. So maybe the Legislature just needs to receive a "letter grade" on common sense.
