A Post About Something Other Than the Election

Many of you know that Husband (known to his students as Mr. V) teaches English as a second language to (mostly) refugees.  He deals with students who know no English when they enter his classroom.  Some of them have had no prior education at all.  So it’s, you know, not the easiest job in the world, but it’s never dull.  Not for one blessed minute.
Today Husband asked his students to write about him using their very best adjectives.  Then he brought their papers home to read to me.  Sometimes it’s good to see yourself through someone else’s eyes–even if that person’s spelling is very, very bad.  Here are some of Husband’s students’ thoughts about him.
