I never thought I'd help a student fix the zipper on her jeans. Don't worry. She wasn't wearing them. And, she was fully clothed. I'm pretty sure the only reason she brought them to me to fix was because our FACS teacher had already gone home for the day. And, I was one of only two teachers left in the school building.
I just hope this doesn't become a regular thing. The next day, the student announced to the class, "Hey everybody! If you have any jeans where the zipper is messed up, bring them to Ms. Hagan. She is a miracle worker when it comes to fixing jeans!"
I also never thought I'd teach a lesson while students were holding infant simulators. As part of our FACS I curriculum, students have to care for a baby from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. I had two male students in my 6th hour class bring their babies to class with them. The babies had yet to turn on, but my female students were instantly drawn to the babies. The insisted on taking them out of their carriers and holding them for the ENTIRE class period. They managed to get all their work done, so I didn't mind.
