Some Things Haven't Changed #SOL20

"Don't get mad at me for what I said at the end." 

These were the words in a message I received from a student today. I sent them a weekly check-in where I asked them questions such as How are you doing? Is there anything you want to tell me? and Do you have any questions about this week? I wanted them to know that I miss them and care about how they are doing.

When I saw B's message, I thought uh-oh, what did she say?

At the very end of the questions, I told them to stay safe and reminded them to stay home because it was very important.

Believe it or not, I have lived with the dinosaurs and come over on the Mayflower and run with the Romans. Or at least that is what my team teachers tell our students. They like to tease me about being the oldest on the team, and the kids can't wait to tell me what they say.

What does this have to do with B's message?

Miss you hope you are keeping your 6 feet because your old and you can get it lol

Even in a time of crisis, it is nice to know that some things haven't changed!

  1. Only the wisest last the longest! Gotta leave love the young!

  2. My students love to tease me about my age, too (though, the opposite way). I love their quickness and sass!

  3. Count on the kids to tell it like they see it...

  4. You have to love the humor of a middle schooler. You can tell them that you're not THAT old!

  5. Kids will be kids...Ha! Thanks for sharing your writing this month. It's been fun hanging out with you.
