To start off the month of LETTERS:
Dear Unruly Students from Today,
First off, would you please shut up and listen to me for once?! Don't you see that things would get done with more quickly and you would have more playtime if I didn't have to ask you to be quiet and pay attention and WAIT forEVER for you?
Secondly, YES YOU HAVE TO! (in response to the perpetual 'do I have to?')
Finally, I would like to apologize for having very little or no sympathy for your crying selves this afternoon. Maybe I should feel bad when you break the rules and end up crying on the floor. The whole point of these rules is to prevent that from happening, but you throw caution (and my nerves) out the window and try your luck without rules. I told you so.
Love, your frazzled afterschool teacher.
