One of my students came to class today in a really BAD mood. On the playground he got angry with me and at the top of his lungs started scream crying, "I have the worst teacher!"
I was torn between feeling happy and disappointed. I mean, am I just THE worst or am I the very BEST at being the worst. After all, one could almost be considered a compliment. (I'll let you decide which one that is)
Anyway, five minutes later as he was going back and forth between talking to his friends and yelling about me or just school in general I was on the verge of getting a headache and was ready for him to stop. I told him that I had my radio and could call the principal so he could talk to him about. The kids response.....
"He's not going to agree with me!"
You needed to hear the tone of voice he used for that answer. He said it like he just couldn't believe that I had made such a ridiculous suggestion. I mean, why waste your time talking to someone who isn't going to agree with you, right?
I had to walk away so he wouldn't see me laughing.
