Scene: I finished up proctoring the ACT Aspire Reading test and walked back into my classroom. One of my students, S, ran over to me as I walked in the room.
S: “Ms. Daley, Ms. Crockett can draw. You can’t draw Ms. Daley!”
Me: “ Ok, S, Ms. Crockett is a great artist and I’m not but that was rude.”
S: “ Aw Ms. Daley but you drew something yesterday and it was good and Ms. Crocket just drew A and it was really good.”
Me: “Again! And what did I say to you yesterday?!”
Other Student: “She saiiiid if you’re going to make fun of her coat of arms drawing she ain’t gonna show you.”
Me: *hair flip* “Plus Ms. Crockett is an artist”
