Student:  “What’s this?”
Me: “Mirror”
Student: “Mirror. Ok. Tomorrow, you’re going to look at a mirror and say ‘Oh! SO beautiful. OK?”
Me: (-_-) …

Female Student:  He has many pictures of you, you were eating lunch.
Me:  O_O

From now on…we recommend that teachers slowly walk away from their students (while watching them) when they have food.  This way you won’t alarm them, and can catch them in the act if they try to take a picture.

Him:  Can I come to your office now to “Chit Chat”? (a 5-minute conversation assignment)
Me:  You don’t need to.  You were my student last semester and we talk all the time.  I know your level.  But, you can if you want.
Him:  I want to.  Right now.  Maybe we can get to know each other better.
Me:  O.o  Ok, but quickly.  (I realize now that this comment just made this whole conversation sooo much worse.)
His conversation lasted for TWENTY MINUTES.  -_-

It’s Just Me and You

Dr. Evil Right


One of my students tried to keep that he had a girlfriend from me for a while…even though they sat next to each other in my class all of a sudden.


When I got ready to leave that job, he insisted that we go grab lunch so I could say bye to everyone.  No one showed up but him.  He had me to “FaceTime” his girlfriend to prove that we were not on a date.


Later, he tells me they are no longer together.  In the same conversation, he says I am beautiful and he misses me.  Then he starts texting me on a regular basis about any and everything…

An Improper Proposition

27 Feb

What the whaa…?
(Courtesy: twistedsifter.com)

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…
(Courtesy: twistedsifter.com)

“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.)
