more "teach" stories
so I've mentioned before I have a little girl in my class that just keeps me on my toes. she kills me this girl. let me give you some details so you can envision this: kids working quietly on their grammar & spelling. me sitting at my desk correcting papers. i brought to school today my "i heart jim" notepad from the glorious dollar bins @ target. its got my "to do" list on it for this next week or so (things that must be done before conferences next week) my list is sitting on my desk, clipped to my plan book. she comes up to hand me a paper. "teach, do you watch this show?" pointing to the paper. I nodded. "my mom does, so i do, too... did you see that one where the boss, Michael threw up? I mean who goes running without drinking water? Yuck, that was disgusting, teach!" she just threw that all out before I could respond. My response was a big ol' smile. she cracks me up!
