An Improper Proposition

27 Feb

What the whaa…?

While asking a student to read her made-up phone number written on her page, THIS happens:

Me:  EunJi, may I have your phone number?

EunJi:  Ok!  Sex-Sex-Sex, Free Sex Tonight!  Call me ok?

Me:  O.o  *a pause a little bit too long to be ok*  One more time?

EunJi’s partner:  She said 666-3629.

Me:  Oh,…okay!  Thank you EunJi!  Class, please practice saying your numbers to each other.  I will come around and check on your fluency.

Color-coded Conspiracies

23 Feb

As teachers, what we wear has a huge impact on our students…

“So, today we got a new schedule change for the whole of next week to make up for the snow days. 😦

I gave it to my students and they told me ‘Teacher, this is a conspiracy.  You did this to us, didn’t you?’

Me:  No, I just got it today too.  I don’t like it much either.

Students:  That’s a lie.  Look, the paper is blue and your hijab is blue today too.  This proves that you planned it.

Me:  (O-O)…What the…(-_-)…..

(My students are definitely special.)

Positively Positive

11 Feb

Not sure if this is always an “optimistic” thing…but we’ll go with it.

I asked my students: “What does optimism mean?”
One of my students: “It means thinking and being positive ALWAYS!”

Nice one! I loved this response!

My student tried to bother me today. Too bad, I know something called customer service.

Student:  You know you’re ugly right?
Me: Ya, thanks!

Me: Yep! That’s great.
