I currently teach 5th grade and even though I never want to give up my students they must go to 6th grade. This year one of the sixth grade teachers and I were talking, she mentioned that she knew right away who my kids were.
She was talking to the kids about expectations and about the class in general, nothing different than any of us. Randomly, she said the word class while talking and a small chorus of yeses issued from those who where once my students. All I could do was laugh.
It occurred to me I never use the word class unless I want a yes back. I call them folks or ladies and gentleman. Folks is my favorite, it's fun to say.
I guess they liked WBT enough to remember it. I think that sums up a lot about WBT.
