Kid at Heart
I once made a joke to a friend of mine that the reason I like teaching middle school so much is that I get to be myself, because I really am a dorky middle school kid at heart. After I made the joke I thought to myself, “Wait, that might actually be true!”
So I was dramatically twisting myself in knots around the front of my room the other day, acting like a big dork while trying to get my LCD remote to get a signal to my laptop, when one of my students said it best:
“Ms. Alexander, are you half kid or something?”
I think I am! *snort* Ha ha!
