With all of the stress of Doctorate work and directing the Competition play, Dr. Bourassa had had enough of her sophomore class. “If I was still a counselor, I would advise myself to break up with you because I’m putting in more effort than you are,” she said to them. This was shortly after the beginning of third quarter in 2014, and her sophomore English class hadn’t been productive; they simply didn’t pass in assignments.

Valentines Day rolled around just like any other day, nothing out of the ordinary, or so it seemed. Once Dr. Bourassa arrived she was called to the office by Mr. Greenlaw, and then held up in the computer lab by Mrs. Peary. While she was distracted, her sophomore class played soft romantic music, placed candles, two dozen roses and two big boxes of gluten-free chocolate around the room.

Dr. Bourassa opened the door and was immediately taken aback at the sight that was before her. All of her students were standing in the middle of the room with a poster that read: “We are sorry for being a bunch of lazy strumpets.” This, of course, was modeled after Othello which they were currently reading in class. The class had gotten together to attempt to patch up the relationship that they had broken.

Dr. Bourassa, having seen the effort put forth by the students, decided to take them back with open arms. Naturally, their work didn’t change, and they were still a bunch of lazy strumpets, but ultimately it was the thought that counted.

    This is my favorite article so far!!! I laughed until tears were streaming down my face. I wish you could have added a picture of her reaction when she walked into the room. I’m guessing it was just as priceless as this article!
