When I disclose that I teach in a junior high school, it’s not unusual for me to receive clucks of sympathy or kind words of appreciation; I suppose there are many people who don’t look back on their middle school years too fondly.  While it’s true that teenagers are not always angels, they do often offer a lot of wonderful surprises.
