As I'm sure many of you know, the end of the school year is chaotic at best. The approaching finish line has brought a plethora of ridiculous moments. You can see anything from a parent accusing you of failing their child (aside: if you are a parent and you're reading this, please don't ever tell your child's teacher that he/she is failing because of you. I've never met a teacher that tries to fail kids and if you think you have, well, change schools or reassess your perfect angel), to a majority of students watching How I Met Your Mother while their teacher slowly implodes (just kidding about the imploding - I think he'll keep his shit together - they have a few more seasons left).
The end of the year virus has its hold on me lately. I haven't updated in a bit. I've been too focused on finalizing summer plans and looking for a new job (insert post about a new teaching gig will go here). Instead of sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly, I want to share the top 3 moments that stuck with me since my last post. Hope you enjoy.
Number 3- Conversations With B
Like the teacher who has been showing How I Met Your Mother, I've been allowing my cherubs to watch Glee in my drama class. #relevant
If you're a professor reading this, please don't scold or roll your eyes at me. "Insert deleted excuse about being tired and how the kids have "checked out here" "(I deleted it as soon as I typed it because there's no excuse for me to give).
But back to B.
He came in during an episode of Glee. The girls were talking about sex and feeling fat. After hear the conversation, B looks over to me and asks, "Is that how it works in real life? If a girl feels fat, they want sex? Or do are they insecure and want something to make them feel better?"
Number 2 - All the Graduations!
Number 1 - Junior Takeover
