I heard a student comment this afternoon that didn't just make my day. I'm pretty sure it made my week.
Student: "Somebody keeps texting me."
Me: "Don't they know you're at school?"
Student: (sheepishly) "I text at school."
Me: (appalled look)
Several other students: "Don't worry. We don't text in your class."
Student: "I'm too unbored to text in your class."
Even though I'm pretty sure that I'm meant to teach high school, I can't help but love my 8th graders.
