Things Teenagers Say: Volume 24

So, I've decided that my motivation of late for blogging is pure procrastination.  At the moment, I'm procrastinating on cleaning my house by typing up this post.  The washer and dryer are both running at the moment, so this still counts as being totally productive, right? ;)

Also - where has this semester gone?!?  Just a few more days until Christmas Break!  I don't know how I'm going to cope with not hearing crazy things come out of the mouths of teenagers for a couple of weeks...

Student comment while I was typing:

You sound like a newspaper maker.

Student 1: Do you just go home and sit in your room and do math?

Student: Well, there's North America, South America, and America America.  Did you really not know that?!?

Me:  I was wearing slacks yesterday.
Student:  The way you dress is old and boring looking.
Me: Okay then...

  1. As a middle school math teacher currently teaching in Vietnam, I love reading what teens say! Unfortunately, my students make these type of comments in Vietnamese, which I do not speak!

    1. Wow! That sounds like a fun, rewarding, and absolutely terrifying scenario to teach in.

    2. I love my international teaching experience. If you ever get the chance, then go for it! There was nothing more rewarding than having the Vietnamese language teacher tell me today that the students always write about my class and me when they have to write paragraphs! :-)

  2. Where are you! Yesterday, one of my seventh graders said, "Mrs. C., do you have any tattoos or body piercings in weird places." I thought of a phrase you type often in these posts - no words.
