I do not know how you put up with baby sitting feral humans.

It’s pretty hard. That first year I thought I’d died and gone to Hell. But eventually you learn tricks to keep them in line, and it can be fun showing them classic movies like Logan’s Run, Truman Show, Groundhog Day, Forrest Gump... stories with morals, you know? Then we use the movies for skills like characterization, symbolism, theme, and write papers on them. I do feel like I make a tiny bit of difference, and there are always several kids each year who are really sweet, and smart, and you want to help them get out of that place, you know?
