outbursts

Sometimes, when I’m in the middle of a lesson and a student interrupts with some shout-out idiocy (ex: “it looks like poop is coming off of the roof!”), it makes me mad and they get The Look:

Most of the time, though, it’s funny stuff.

Yesterday, I’m in the midst of teaching how to write a narrative, and one of my seventh grade girls says, “ohmygosh! You look like Carrie Underwood!”

I don’t. But, anyway, how nice.

For so many reasons, I like what I do.
