I know I often complain about how tough my students are, but I also have to say that they can be so cute, funny or sweet. So let's share some positives and funnies (I thought there was a similar thread to this before, but couldn't find it). So, highlights from today: - we read the story "By Any Other Name' which brought up a discussion about racism and cultural tolerance. I was telling the class how I felt about this, and then one guy raises his hand and asks "Miss Marianna, where can I meet a girl like you?" It was so cute, and he sounded so sincere. He wasn't hitting on me, he was trying to say he wants to meet someone that thinks the way I do. It was sweet. - (same class) I'm trying to teach, some students cut me off. They're on the topic, but somewhat argumentative, and we're now beating a dead horse. One kid (who's usually not my best student) says to the others: you guys shut up, don't make her mad! Miss Marianna, I agree with you, you're right about everything, please go on" That was hilarious, in that classroom, with those students.
