Fig, I think it's great that the kids like you. I think back on the teachers I had and the ones that come to mind as being great are the ones who interacted with me, the ones who made the classes fun..
Fig, I teach high school also. I have one student who Aspergers. One day in class the young man was talking to me and this is the conversation we had a week ago.
Student - Mrs.R, you know what I'd like to see? Me - What would you like to see V? Student- A really hot girl topless Me - (Trying to act like it's no big deal he said this) V, I really don't think this is a appropriate conversation to be having at school. Student - (very sincere) It's not? Okay, I didn't know that.
While this conversation is going on the boys are snickering. Student - D, why are you laughing, wouldn't you like to see a hot girl topless?
I sure wish I had written down all the funny things I had witnessed the 22 years I've been teaching!

How bout a nice Irish cream coffee please> My feet are cold. I'm sitting outside. I need to put some socks on. With my capris that will look silly. So I guess I'll get my jeans. Isn't it supposed to still be summer? Did we even have summer? What is this about Yodelling? How about Modeling?
