As a teacher, I have heard some wild comments from students. And, I am always amazed how perceptive kids can be.
After enjoying my summer off, I had lunch with a colleague last week. She spent the summer working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
One morning in the library, she was stopped by Diana, who was soon to be in second grade. “My grandmother used to be a teacher,” Diana proudly informed her. “That’s why she died.”
Wow! I’ve been back in school for five days – I get it!
