At the beginning of the school year I wrote a letter of recommendation to my alma mater. I wrote this letter for a student who exemplifies the kind of woman I want my daughter to grow up to be. This student worked hard to maintain an A in my AP Language class. She never took getting good grades for granted and was able to inspire her fellow students to work harder in their studies as well.

This year she came back during the last period of the day, when he had an early release, to help me grade quizzes, file, run copies, and the like. She did this to gain experience (she wants to teach special education), and because she saw how crazy my last block was and she knew that I could use all of the help I could get. A week ago her mom sent me an email to congratulate me on my national board certification and to tell me how proud she was that her daughter was present at the school board meeting when my accomplishments were spoken of. That made me cry.

Then, this week the student found out she got in to her #1 school, early admission. And what does he do to celebrate? She makes ME purple and gold cookies, because I wrote her the letter of recommendation. That made me cry again. Seriously, sometimes our jobs make us the luckiest people on the planet.

I love everything John Green, but this interview is especially interesting. Here is one quote: “I stand by the author’s note. I think authorial intent is pretty irrelevant, and I tend to agree with the school of literary criticism that proclaims the death of the author. There’s no question that authors are a character in their books, that authors exist inside their books, but I believe that authors are generally the least interesting characters in their books."

We spend much of our time as teachers talking about author intent. We work to have our students break apart a novel to find out the meaning behind everything. Yet, as readers we know that reading is personal and we manifest the ideas put in front of us in different ways. Perhaps we should be teaching our students to find their own meaning in all the texts we read (even the ones by old, dead, white guys).
