Happy #Thanksgiving!

Delicous treasure from one of my adorable students today – another gave me some Bon Bons.  Since I had to work on #thanksgiving (not a Holiday abroad 😭), this was quite the treat!

So #Old

20 Jun

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‘»

#Teacher Humor ~ Why my darlings, Why?!?

Student πŸ‘¦attends a sum total of 9/22 classes πŸ’»for the semester — not including the last class where we discussed the examπŸ“š. Sends me an urgent emailπŸ“§, “But Teacher, we have many questions before the test.” . . . . . .

Me πŸ‘© πŸ’’ (in my mind. . .) “I don’t think you need to worry about that”.πŸ™„
My actual answer πŸ‘© (😣)”. . . . . I distinctly remember πŸ€”telling you not ❌ to miss any more classesπŸ““ this semester — you missed 🏝three in a row. We discussed the test last class, but you skipped itπŸ’€πŸ˜΄.”
Student πŸ‘¦: “Oh yes teacher. I know!”

Me. . . . SMHπŸ™ƒπŸ˜‘

#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
