I teach high school seniors & dull moments are rare. They are either doing something or saying something that has me questioning the future of our nation or rolling with laughter. So I bring you volume one of "Sh*t My Students Say"
During a power outage
Student: My phone is dying! I need a charger!
Student walks to the door
Me: Go sit down
Student: I'm trying to look out the window
Me: The window is by your desk
Student walks back to desk
After getting the students to be quiet
Student: I told you she had some black in her
After asking them to tell me their first name & something they like that starts with the same letter
Student: My name is D___ & uhh I don't know what goes with a D
The entire class, myself included, lost it
Student: That is NOT what I meant!
Me: Jus Sangunis means law of blood. This means we are citizens because...
Student: Because we have blood!!
Student: how old are you
Me: How old do you think I am?
I showed them a google map of where I grew up
Student 1: Miss! Did you have any friends?
Student 2: Where are all the people?! Did you have any neighbors?
Student 3: What did your school house look like?!
Student 4: It's like Little House on the Prairie!!
Student 1: Miss we love you
Me: Well I love y'all too
Student 2: Miss love is a strong word...I like you...we can't just be throwing love around.
