You never know what they’ll say!

Despite what you may read on Facebook or on Twitter or what you may hear about in the news, most teachers considers theirs a most rewarding profession.

Just like any other occupation, there are good days, bad days, and days that make you tilt your head and say “What?!”

In this series, I’ll share with you those things that show my students have been paying attention, but perhaps not as keenly as one might hope.

Following a Discussion on Basic Astronomy:

It’s too bad we don’t have [name here]; he’s the sun of my life.

Or someone named Juliet

Why Juliet?

Um, Shakespeare? I know you covered this in English:

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?

It is the east, and Juliet is the Sun.

Arise fair sun, and kill the envious moon . . .

I didn’t really like Romeo And Juliet . . .

Well, you really shouldn’t like teen suicide.

Teen suicide? I don’t get it.

Sigh


An Important Notice

As a teacher, I’m well aware of the need for my student’s privacy.

As such please be aware that

(a) I have permission to share.

(b) I will not divulge names.

If you know either me or my students in real life, refrain from guessing who said what.

Such comments will be deleted.

(c) I do not intend to belittle, malign, or disparage in any way.

This is intended to be along the lines of the old Art Linkletter program Kids Say the Darndest Things.

[But not the Cosby remake. Nobody wants to be like Cosby these days.]
