Sometimes, I am on buses and other forms of public transportation with high school students. I have been known to cheerily greet the private school kids (accidentally), who then look completely confused. Some of my students will greet or acknowledge me. Some will remain absorbed in whatever it is they are doing. With some, you can almost feel the prayers emanating from them. "Please don't make me speak English!" But there is one student who rides the bus with his friend, and they will actually go out of their way to try to have an English conversation with me. It's always fun to see them on the bus!
