Things My Students Say (3)

My students have been paying attention, but perhaps not as keenly as I might hope.

 

If you’re breaking the law, you should at least be safe!

[last year, in a class on personal safety in the home]

Me:

Remember: always use products with dangerous fumes in a well-ventilated area.

Student:

Oh, like meth?

Well, at least someone paid attention during the drug abuse section

This student used to live next to a now-busted dealer. I lived not but three houses from the same dealer. I suppose it was trying to make light of a bad situation. Maybe you had to be there.

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. I am posting with the permission of the student(s).
