Things Teenagers Say Volume 20

Takeaways from the latest set of crazy things my kids say in class:

* My students will never stop thinking of me as a crazy cat lady. 

* I've also taken up the title of "crazy plant lady."  And, I do NOT have a green thumb.  

* My kiddos say what they think.  A lot.

I didn't really know what teachers did after school.

--

Ms. Hagan, everything that you say is really cool is actually really lame.

--

After telling a group of students about my Twitter Math Camp experience...

Student: Could I go with you next year to Twitter Math Camp?  I could be your math camp assistant!  
Me: Ha ha.  I don't think I need an assistant.  
Student:  At golf tournaments, the players have golf caddies.  I could be your calculator caddie. 

--

Student: Slope. Ugh.
Me: Students complaining in class. Ugh.
Student: Go to the office.
Me: Well, then...

--

I can't see that. I'm mentally blind.

--

So, I read stalked you on twitter last night.  I was like: "How funny could a teacher actually be on twitter?!?"  But, then I just sat on my bed and read your twitter and laughed out loud.  You're actually funny!

--  

Student: Can you pull your hair in front of your ears?
Me: Yesssssss...
Student: Will you do it?
Me: Whyyyyyyyyyy?
Student: Well, I've only ever seen your hair behind your ears.  I was starting to wonder if it was surgically attached there. 
Me: Getting back to the lesson now...

--

Student 1: Ms. Hagan, you need to step up your calculator game.
Student 2: Ms. Hagan's calculator game is strong.

--

Could you kiss a pig?  I mean, you can't have meat on your mouth.

--

I thought you would be okay with kissing a pig.  You love animals.  I mean you don't eat them.  

--

Are you going to take your cats trick-or-treating?

--

When you take up for the cats like that, we know you're a cat lady.

--

Why aren't you doing prom?  You could use the extra money you'd make to buy more cat food.

--

You mean this tape measure is in inches?

#yeschildthoseareinches 

--

Are you going to take your mask off in honor of Halloween?

--

Can you desmos this?

--

ALL of your calculators are broken.
 
It turns out hitting the enter button does not turn on a graphing calculator...

--

Do you know what I say when people ask me if I have a math class? I say no; I have a roller coaster class.

--

How could you be scared of Ms. Hagan?  She talks to her plants.

--

People who love math are always lonely.

  1. This week one of my 9th graders said, "I chose B, because it rhymes with bologna sandwiches." I immediately wrote it down so that someday I too can blog about the Things Teenagers Say.
