Inside Voice, Outside Voice, #Teaching Voice

12 Sep

Roger (the totally awesome IT guy) came to class today to install a new microphone. He asked if I needed one. I said “No, I’m pretty loud without it.” Girl in the back of a room of roughly 96 students — “Oh yes, we can hear very good.” Me: πŸ€£πŸ˜‚. . . Roger: Oh. I think you do not need this. It’s okay. Me: LOL. I thought not.

So #Old

My students have been taking graduate pictures. πŸ“· πŸŽ“ They keep talking about how ‘old they are’ now – they’re like 19-24. 😱 Horrible I know. . .  I’m 27! They’re aging me folks! If they’re ‘old’ – I’m one step out of the grave πŸ‘»

#TeachingLols ~ That’s a lot of Kids!

6 Apr
πŸ˜†
So I’m working with my international students (Mongolia, Indonesia, and India) and asked what they did this summer.
One girl goes off because she expected to have a vacation, but got stuck working. She starts listing all of her chores, complaining, and the other students are just nodding along commiserating.
She finally gets to the part where she had to babysit her siblings and cousins. The kids are like “yep, yep” right up until she goes “So, I just want to say that I’ve learned from this summer. I mean, I am totally not going to have more than 5 kids. That’s just more than enough.” Said completely sincerely with no inflection or emphasis at all. Β You could see them start to nod again, stop, look at one another and turn in unison to stare at her. One girl goes “FIVE kids” with eyes real big. She goes “Yeah! I mean, I think stopping there is plenty.” They stare some more. I crack up secretly on the inside.
This in the country where 2 kids is only just now allowed universally and is still pretty rare in the cities.Β 

#Students – Always Pushing, Pushing

πŸ‘ΈMe: Only one rule – You MUST use nasdaq.com or marketwatch.com so you can become familiar with international finance tools. It’s important to know how the rest of the world works! πŸ’°πŸ“ˆπŸ“ŠπŸ’ΉπŸŒ
πŸ‘§Student: Can I use this random Chinese company I found on a different website. It’s really easy for me to find cause it’s all Chinese.
πŸ‘ΈMe: Is it on nasdaq or marketwatch?
πŸ‘§Student: . . . . No.
πŸ‘ΈMe: . . . . . . . . . .πŸ˜’πŸ™„
πŸ‘§Student: Never mind Teacher! I Know.
πŸ‘ΈMe: πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‹πŸ™ƒ
