Devil in the Details!
Once in a while as a teacher or parent, you hear your well thought out, sage advice echoed back from a student or your own child. And it doesn't sound so well thought out. Or sage. Today was yet another day in a string of testing days. One of my students in particular has the most uncanny reaction to any kind of testing situation...he gets attacked by a horrible bout of stomach sickness, or as in today's case, a blinding headache. It's as if he's allergic. Anyway, as I am getting the class settled in for the fun, he approached, as I knew he would.
Student: Mrs. Butler? My head is KILLING me! I can't even THINK!
Me: I know what you mean. I have a headache today too! Remember what I always tell you I do when I have a headache?
Student (rolling eyes): Yes, you DRINK A LOT and put your head down on your desk.
Me: Ummm...yeah. Something like that.
H2O-boy. Stay hydrated, friends! And if you are a teacher, may your students always THIRST for knowledge! Somebody stop me!
Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!
