And Now For Something Completely Different...

One of the things I did not anticipate about going back to school is how curious my students are about it.  I usually bring a textbook and notebook with me in case I have a few free minutes (a hilarious thought), and they're always flipping through the book and marveling over all the notes I take and asking if I have to write reports and take tests.  It's very cute.

A few days ago, one of them asked me why I was going to school.  "Are you going to be a counselor?"  I told him that I had thought about being a counselor but for now, I wanted to be a teacher instead of an aide. 

He got a panicked look on his face.  "Which room are you going to be in?" 

"Oh, I don't know," I said, deciding to skip explaining that I might not even work at our school.  "We'll have to see."

"Noooooooooooooo!"

"What, you don't think I'd be a good teacher?"

"No, I just don't want you to be someone else's teacher before you're done being my aide."

And that's my story.
