I’m staring out the window, gazing at trees. I’m 15 years old. My maths teacher is busy, untangling knots of algebra on the blackboard; my friend is taking it all down. She’s using different coloured pens, underlining, highlighting. There’s a tug in me because I know I should be doing the same.

One of my favourite novels to teach is Of Mice and Men. I know it’s been on the curriculum forever; I remember watching the film with Gary Sinise in school myself, but Steinbeck’s message is timeless.
