Kids Say the Darnest Things

I haven’t posted in a while, and life has changed in a million ways.

Since the last time…

  • I took an amazing trip to Israel with my brother13422429_10153731857360017_7206828911368831057_o.jpg
  • And then extended it to a few days in New York13443042_10153731586435017_7524114076919009994_o.jpg
  • I started teaching (woah what????)13713440_10153813729385017_1516904633_n.jpg

Transitioning from my very lax college schedule to grown up life has been interesting. The work is long and hard, but so so worth it.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the job is the things the kids say… they’re quite the little comedians.

For example:

One class was reading a book on civil rights. The question was “Do you think civil rights is still an issue?” The answer from a kid – “No, because Trump is still here.”

I easily pass for Hispanic. One of my students asked me “Mrs. M, do you speak Spanish?” I told her no. She looked very surprised. A minute later… she hesitantly asked “So… what ARE you?” I asked her what she is. Her answer? A proud American.

It’s such an amazing experience to teach. I’m extremely excited for the fall to come, to be able to have a classroom and the months in the year to get to know these kids, and hopefully, impact them in one way or another.

So that’s life lately…
