All teachers have them. I’ve only been teaching a short time and already I have a few gems. Not to mention all the quotes I’ve gathered over the years from working with kids in general. A current trend I’m noticing with students is this obsession with asking me about my relationship status. I often wear a ring on my left ring finger – it doesn’t mean anything, it just happens to fit comfortably on that finger. However, apparently this is something kids look for. My favourites thus far have been in the form of…
This was from a gr.9 class
Female Student: Are you married?
Female Student: Engaged?
Female Student: Do you have a boyfriend?
Male Student: Of course she has a boyfriend! What kind of a question is that? He’s probably really hot too. All teachers have hot boyfriends. Right Miss?
This was from a gr.6 class…
Student: Are you married? Engaged? Boyfriend? Dating? Single?
Student: Oh. Well you should have a boyfriend cause you’re like…old.
Me: Well, I think my Prince Charming got lost and refuses to ask for directions.
Student: I don’t get it.
Me: You will when you’re older.
Ah, kids. So delightful!
