Dean Serravalle: "Teachers Who Kill Their Pets"

Dean Serravalle's piece in The Danforth Review, "Teachers Who Kill Their Pets", on the challenges and obligations of contemporary high school English teachers:

I remember walking into our school library one day to see a number of special needs students and the leader of the pack, our librarian, tearing apart old books and filling recycling bins with pages. The books were beginning to "smell," she explained, while some were on the verge of developing "mould." Like books didn’t have enough to worry about in a competitive entertainment sales market, I thought to myself, they were now potential health hazards.
