I’VE COME TO AN AGE (65) when I realize I live in an entirely different world than my students. Words like “jalopy” or “fuddy-duddy” mean nothing to them. My mother, who taught kindergarten, used to watch Saturday morning cartoons once a month to keep up with her students’ chatter; this summer I have read Connor Franta’s A Work in Progress to find out what gay millennials are up to.
