    I attempt to engage 8th graders with English, so I feel your pain….but I am the mother of a senior who is 6 weeks out from graduating. I received a text from her English teacher, a friend, who let me know that my darling daughter responded on a comprehension quiz with all things gLee. She had not done the reading and thought she would have some fun. Go Seniors.
