So, my quotable kid, as I'll call this junior girl I'm oft quoting here and on Twitter, starts a conversation with me today. (Yes, on a Saturday, we had a snow day make-up day -grrrrr).
"Hey, Ms. Jro. There are essentially two kinds of high school teachers."
Me: "Oh, yeah?"
"Yeah. Totally. Like the ones who had a great time at high school and so they're back, reliving their glory days and then the teachers like you, who teach because they love teaching."
Me: "You really think so?"
"Totally. You know the ones, the cool teachers who are out clustered in groups in the hallway gossiping about us and stuff."
Me: "So what are you saying about me? I'm not cool?" (I don't gather in the hallway)
"No, that's why you ARE cool. Like the art teacher, drama teacher, band teacher and sometimes the English teachers are nerds, too. Like the ones of us that are nerds. But those other teachers, it's like they were the TOP DOGS in high school and now they're back, still making life miserable for the nerds. Because, it was like, the best time of their lives, and they want to go back."
So, fellow nerds, agree? Disagree? Discuss. I'm kind of thinking she may have a point.
