Sh*t my students say


5th grade girls: Teacher, you have boyfriend?
me: No, I am single.
Girls: Ooooh good! Let's sing "Single Ladies!"
me: You got it girls!

Sh*t my students say

Conversation with the VP

I was sick yesterday, and had this gem of a conversation with my vice-principal waiting for me today.

VP: Being sick on Monday is not good, only on Tuesday or Friday you can be sick
me: *blank stare*
VP: You understand? Because in Korea, we the hardest worker, come even though we have the sick.
me: (sarcastically) Oh ~ I didn't realize that the sick days included in my contract were not for Monday.
VP: OK, good, now you understand.
