During a parent-teacher association meeting last week, the school principal stopped Martin to praise Miss C’s presentation earlier today. Apparently, she not only did a great job leading her peers during their recent GROUP PROJECT (*gasp*), but “her research, delivery, and language efforts did not go unnoticed.”
We knew she was stressin‘ about homework lately, but didn’t realize it was a group gig with public speaking involved. I still struggle making my own freakin’ hair appointments in German, but she’s over here doing research, delegating group tasks, writing speeches, and impressing her teachers.
Miss C, you make it look easy, but we know how hard you work. We‘re so proud of you … although we would still be proud of you even if you tanked the whole thing and embarrassed us with salty vocabulary.
(With group projects … I will never judge you.)
