Every day as the last thing I do in my classroom before heading home, I check my mailbox.
Fan mail today? Nope. Just two notes about needing a new dry erase marker and a complaint about a boy that sits nearby on the carpet.
How about now? Out of luck. But there is a notebook request that starts with a rather unique opening for someone asking a favor. Plus a question about when we're going to have the pretzels for snack.
Today there's got to be some....OK--not so much "fan mail" as "petition to move to a new table."
But today, I did get some actual fan mail--not in my classroom mailbox, but via email from a complete stranger who read my McSweeney's list today. I do love the fan mail! Complaint notes, though--those I could do without.

And if you want to pre-order the newest couch from Crate and Barrel.....
