The other day a little girl in my class brought a picture of her mom's ultra sound to class to proudly show off her new baby brother or sister.... The little girl was bombarded by students who wanted to know if it was a boy or girl. She put her hands on her hips and said.... "People, we don't know what it is. It ain't got no parts yet."
Today a 5th grader asked me if I was Asian. I said, "no." She said well are you Mexican. I said "no." She said well are you a Filipino because you are the same color as her and she is a Filipino. The girl she pointed to said, "I am not a Filipino. I am Philadelphia." The girl responded back... "DUH, That makes you a Filipino."
There is a student who has a bit of speech problem and when the other students heard her talk they asked why she sounded that way. One student spoke up and said, "It's ok ya'll... She is British!"
The other day we had "popcorn chicken" for lunch... A student asked why we were having popcorn with our chicken.
The other day I told some one during indoor recess if they misbehaved during recess time that they would "get the boot" from playing for a while. A little girl who was wearing big brown boots took hers off and said, "Here Mr. D... You can use mine!!!!!"
I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!
