I keep saying I need to write a book on some things I have encountered as a teacher. Some are endearing, while others are just CRAZY. Friday was one of those CRAZY days. The third-grade teachers were all at an in-service, and I was left behind. The saying, while the cat is out, the mice will play, rang true ALL day long.
Anyway, a student asked me if I was 22 years old the other day. My ego was inflated as I said “Yes!” with a lot of enthusiasm. A minute later, another student pumped up, “You look too old to be 22 years old. My ego was deflated.
Another student piped up, “You are 30 years old.” My ego was inflated once again. But then it was deflated when another student blurted out my real age. How they knew my real age, I don’t know.
