Yo Miss

My high school students are some of the funniest people I know. This blog in no way aims to make fun of or judge these students, rather serves as an outlet to document their quick wit and brilliant humor that keeps us laughing throughout the day.
When a student has observed me too long, and we talk about our plans for the weekend: 
“What do you have planned? Sittin’ on the couch, eating yogurt and drinking seltzer?”

When we take the soccer team to see Taken II at the end of the season:

A la Mean Girls: 
After a heart-to-heart about a bad game at soccer practice: 
Student 1: “At the end of the day, we’re all friends, no matter how bad we play. How many people can say that?!”
Student 2: “She doesn’t even go here!”
Student 1: “I just like talking about my feelings.”
