And So it Begins...
Welcome to my 6th Grade class. Here they are. They are the ones that keep me up at night, that make me smile, that help me realize that I do have a calling in life, and who give me gray hairs. I'm really excited about this year's class. If you've read past blogs about my last years class, you'll know this one is heaven sent.
Kids say the darndest things...here's mine for the day:
While teaching about Ancient Greece the students were shouting out different gods and goddesses they knew. One kid yelled out "Hercules." Then another kid yelled out, "No, dummy, he's a Demi-God." Another kid: "What's a demi-god?" Another kid: "That means he had sex with a god."
What do I say to that?
