Hello, all. Seems like I have a lot of questiosn related to my English teacher Mrs. W lately. I told her today that I would bring in some of my poems for our poetry unit that starts tomorrow. That way she could read them for the fun of it when she got some time. I am bringing one about my dad. Since he died in January (which may or may not be implie din the poem) the poem is very special to me. I thought about jotting down a little note that said something like, By the way, this poem means a lot to me because my dad died in January. That is why I wrote it. I'm wondering, though, since I've been wanting to know whether she was told or not last year (I figure she probably knows because it was in the scool announcements), if this is a good thing or a bad thing to say. I don't want her pity (I despsise pity), but I thought maybe I'd just tell her what the purpose of the poem is. If I don't make a big deal of it, everything should be okay, right? I can tell her that?
