This I found to be quite odd. I am not sure how to explain it. This is on a Friday on a shortened day. Here goes. I teach English. At the beginning of the year, I do an activity where students do a sentence starter and then they pass to the next student. They create a story. The lesson generally goes well because it is fun. I notice afterward the student treat me like a peer. For example, the girls would come into my room and ask "personal questions" Some of the boys would say my first name as I walk away (it was after school and I have no idea who it was.) I tend to ignore the students when they do that especially in front of their friends. This is also a new school. I just started last week. My plan is to forget about it and focus on the academics and move forward from here. Fun activities are great but not when I am treated like a peer.
