Selective Mutism, Silent and Misunderstood

A teaching publication rejected an article about how to identify, understand, and work with students with Selective Mutism ... on the grounds that they only publish articles about teachers. Insert huffy breath here. Aren't students of interest to teachers? Aren't strategies to reach and teach students of interest to teachers? I am a little miffed.

Perhaps I should be grateful he didn't say, "No thanks; your writing rots." Perhaps I should be glad about that.

I'm not. Now *I* am "Silent and Misunderstood."
