Kids can make your heart melt- or your self-esteem plummet.
It’s no secret that teaching requires a thick skin sometimes. Kids are brutally- and I mean BRUTALLY- honest, so I compiled some of the more memorable comments I’ve received from students over the past year.
- “Goodbye teacher, see you in hell.”
- “Teacher, you look like Annabelle” (see below)
- “Teacher, why you have brown on your face?”
- Student: Teacher, what’s that on your arm?
Me: They’re called freckles. It’s what happens sometimes when pale people go in the sun.
Student: Oh. I thought it was an allergic reaction.
- “You have a sister? Is she a little bit fat like you?”
- Student: Teacher, what’s that on your skin?
Me: *explains freckles*
Student: Oh. So… is it a disease?
- Student: Teacher, are you married?
Student: HAHA. FOREVER ALONE.
- (With regard to my habit of spacing out) “Teacher, you always have fog on your face.”
- “Teacher, today, you are not beautiful. Today, you look like a boy.”
- “Teacher, please sit down. Your butt is not good.”
