Advanced Placement

Got this tweet from a HS student in Albuquerque, NM saying that her high school’s AP English class was reading and debating my NYT piece from February. How cool is that?!?? Though I obviously know how far-reaching the Internet is, I often write or post things without even considering their potential reach. I’m flattered that someone who teaches AP English thought my article worthy enough to share with his class. Moreover, some 16 years after graduating HS, I finally made it into an AP class. Wait til I tell my mom! #Validation
