    My kids were being extra rambunctious today. Anyway, at one point I announced, "Please don't make me use a loud voice. My throat is sore and I don't want to start coughing."

    A few seconds later, someone shouted, "DOES ANYONE HAVE A RICOLA???"

    We all started laughing and every time I think about it, I start giggling. That kid comes up with the most random one-liners!!! :lol:

    I love middle school kids!

    Well, most of the time, anyway.

    My group this year isn't quite as "quick" as some with the one-liners, but they're getting better. A few years ago I had a class that was awesome with the comebacks.

    My middle-schoolers crack me up on a daily basis, when I don't want to strangle them... :)

    It is a very fine line in the middle school! Some days they will make me laugh and other days the exact same situation makes me want to pull my hair out. But overall, I do love them.

    I am going to be a future middle school teacher. I expect them to come up with some more wise cracks than would elementary students would. I think that will be part of the fun.

    I loved my student teaching experience with 7th graders. They were hitting that cusp between childhood and adolescence with a mix of humor and horror. One time I asked a class to please act like the young adults they were becoming. A girl in the front row tilted her head and answered, "But I want to still be a KID!" My stern face was cracked into a grin for the rest of the day.

    Being a middle school teacher is a blast. One minute my kids are the sweetest most innocent kids in the world where they come to my crying about a boy who doesn't like them anymore and then the next minute they are insisting we all speak in English accents and then the next minute they make me want to jump off a bridge.

    I really love them. They are the weirdest breed of student!

    I had this one day where two of my girls were at each other's throats in study hall, so I pulled them into my office and did some conflict resolution with them. I had to put my hand over my mouth while they dished out why they were mad at each other because everything they were saying was hilarious. They looked like a cheesy tv movie on Lifetime. :lol:

    This is exactly why my goal is to teach middle school. At the end of my student teaching experience every student in my sixth grade class wrote a note to me. The third hour had a snack period and one student religiously brought in a type of cereal called "Tasteos". Not just some in a plastic bag, the whole giangantic box.In his letter he wrote wonderful things and then at the end he wrote "And remember kids, always eat your Tasteos!".

    I want to teach middle schoolers so badly! Hopefully I get the chance next year. I have a study hall with 8th graders (and am with the younger kids most of the day as an aide). When I am with them I can actually discuss real things.... i love it a lot more than younger kids.

    Of course they can be annoying at times, but I definitely want to teach middle schoolers!
