You will be sad to hear that my most quotable student is in Africa for the next three weeks. I know. I’m not sure what I’ll do without my daily dose of ridiculousness from her either. It is going to be tough, but we can get through this quote-drought together.
Here is a conversation from yesterday with a different student:
Student: Miss K, do you remember when you said you were like a Grandma? That was so silly.
Teacher: Yes, that was silly (and I only vaguely remember this. I have no context for how it came up.)
Student: Yeah, that was so silly. Grandmas are big and strong and carry heavy things.
Teacher thinks: WHAT?! THAT is how I am different from a Grandma???? ouch.
I will try to encourage the rest of the class to step up their game in the absence of Student A, but I make no promises.
