Spring Break's Over; Girl Crying

I knew spring break was over at the sight of the young woman in front of me, her eyes full of tears, explaining away her inability to turn in the paper that had been due four weeks ago, and then paper that was due a week and half ago.

It was a lovely, lovely spring day. I handed her a tissue, said we'd conference with whoever she needed to in her support system that's behind the scenes. Keep going, I encouraged. Keep trying.

What do you think the odds are that she'll have her assignment ready for Wednesday?
