Student Quote of the Day 05.15.12 May 15, 2012

This one is actually from about a month ago, but I didn’t want to forget it so I’m immortalizing it here. During my after school HW club I was reviewing new vocabulary words with one of my students, and she was stuck on “desperate.”

  • Me: To be “desperate” means that you want something so badly you would do almost anything to get it.
  • Student: Oooh… Like, the woman was “desperate” because she never found a husband?

Yikes. No, 10-year-old who is way too young to think that way, that’s not at all what I meant. But technically, yes, you are correct.

Sincerely, Stasia
