I lead my third ACT prep class of the year tonight. I had a smaller class tonight, eight students. I got to talk to the students more than usual. One was a home schooled sophomore who was trying to get to MIT. He was worried about paying the tuition. Another was trying to get into Johns Hopkins for radiology. Most of the high school students I teach have much less ambition. This group reminded me why I went into education.
My last, hopefully, ACT prep class will be at nearby Augusta High School. I'm shamefully excited to go there because they have one famous alumni. I'll leave it to you to guess who.
