I always thought it was just me: that deep need to yawn in class, or that feeling I can't keep my eyes open. It hit me throughout school and university, and more recently while attending conference presentations. But it's not just me: it's what will happen to most people if you force them to sit and listen all day. That's one of the lessons learned by this teacher doing everything a student does though the day. Another lesson? I see math classes still start first thing in the morning (at 7:45!). This is why I did poorly in math throughout my education (save for the one year it was 1:00 pm). (p.s. yes the headline is total clickbait.)
