Today's Monday which in my classroom means a time to share "Good Things." It's getting to that point in the school year where I'm looking forward to summer vacation. Spring Break seems like a distant memory. It's easy at this point in the year to lose my focus and think only about those important tests we have coming up. But, I didn't go into education for the testing. I went into education for the students. And, today, they are my good thing. If it wasn't for my students who inspire me daily, push me to be a better teacher, and have a penchant for saying crazy things that make me (and the rest of the Internet) laugh, I couldn't do the job I love.

I didn't say I was going to kill you. I just mentioned that something might happen to you.
Ms. Hagan, you're grounded! You're not allowed to be a math teacher anymore. I think that's the only thing you would ever get mad about missing.
If I ever have children, I'm not going to expose them to math until the oldest age possible.
He sounds like a dying walrus when he laughs.
Will you kick [Student 1] out of class if I give you [Student 2]'s leg?
Ms. Hagan doesn't need another leg!
Do you need a tissue for your issue?
I wonder how many cows it takes to make one burger...
It can go at most 1. Does that mean it can go 2?
Student 1: Ms. Hagan, your outfit is on point today!
Me: Thanks! I'm super excited about this dress because it has pockets.
Student 2: You could use your pockets to shoplift stuff. No one would ever notice!
Me: Do you really think I would be the type of person to shoplift?!?
Student 2: I can totally see you shoplifting calculators.
Student 1: Math is like a graveyard.
Student 2: No, math is like a relationship. It's full of problems that can't be solved.
Student 1: What are you doing?
Student 2: Writing letters to donationers.
Student: Does your boyfriend call you Ms. Hagan or Sarah?
Me: What do you think?
Student: Oh, I guess that would be kind of weird for him to call you Ms. Hagan.
Student 1: Do you know what rhymes with Friday?
Student 2: Pi Day?
Student 1: No. Vodka.
Student 1: It's hot in here.
Me: I'm not hot.
Student 2: Yes you are. You're welcome.
(While playing taboo...)
Student 1: You get this when you're a girl. It has to do with your breasts.
Student 2: A bra?
Student 1: No. They smash them in a machine.
Student 3: Mammogram.
Student 1: Oh. I thought that was called a monogram. Oops...
Ms. Hagan, he's cropping his ex-girlfriend out of the picture by turning her into a tree!
Walking through the hallways is like walking through "Days of our Lives."
