Anecdote: Learning important tricks

Type: Anecdote

Anna Thorby's students give her some good advice.

I'm a teacher of English in a primary school, but I still study at university.

One day I made a test for my pupils and later the same day I was to take a difficult exam, which made me a little absent-minded. While the children were taking the test I glanced nervously at my exam notes. The students noticed my nervousness and asked what was going on. So I told them about my exam. Then, all of a sudden they started to pull out various crib sheets from their pencil cases, pockets, even from shoes and told me how I could use them during the exam. I couldn't be angry with then, after all they wanted to help me!
