humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds, press our lips together, smoke dried leaves, get drunk off of old fruit. we’re all just little animals, falling in love and having breakfast beneath billions of stars :~)
its dead week
my sister has given up on being an english major and has decided to be a full time burrito
she was quoted saying “burritos don’t have to write lesson plans”
i’ve decided to join her
burritos don’t have to take tests
Are those…actual burritos you’re burritoing next to?
those are taquitos
those are our children
your children are beautiful and that is the most lovely family photo I ever did see!
This post accurately sums up student teaching for me.
Not only do burritos not have to write lesson plans, they also don’t have to grade (and have looming deadlines for those grades.) Yup. I’m being a burrito. Now the question is: what kind of burrito am I?
One day I will have enough time so I don’t have to eat and grade at the same time. I’m debating between ignoring it, scribbling over it w/ pen or just putting a funny self-deprecating comment on it.
The teacher who I replaced was my sub. She is an amazing teacher, a sass queen, and just all around great resource (she’s seriously the Professor McGonagall we all want to be.) And even she had issues with that bad class. She also wrote up three of the four students I’ve had issues with (the fourth was in an IEP meeting.) It is validating to know that it’s not just me. But it’s disappointing to know that this happened right after I had a heart-to-heart with one of them about appropriate behaviour and how I know that they are better than the behaviour they have been exhibiting.
