Happy Friday! Have you ever been called mom or dad by a student? It's so cute! The student is usually mortified, but I always say something like, "If only" or "Wouldn't I be lucky" with a wink.

I have never been called that but I did have a student ask me if I would adopt him. I was a one on o e with a child who was a foster child. I was honored to be asked but I could not at that time. I saw him a few years later and he got into a great family and he did amazing in school also. I wonder what he is doing now.

One day as a student was walking out and I was telling him good bye and have a nice weekend. His response was so automatic, "Good bye, I love you." And then, he realized it was his teacher, not his mom! 🤣😂🤣

Never have.

Nope.

Many times. I will usually say, “ Yes son/daughter, what do you need?” Sometimes they don’t realize they’ve said it, but the other kids in the class will confirm it.

It was a very sad day when I graduated to being called Grandma!

Yes! 🤣

My partner and I have been seeing each other for almost two years. We met at work while on the same team but now we haven’t been on the same team for at least 6 months now. We live together and our relationship progressed the most throughout the pandemic. Since we were working from home the entire time, our coworkers didn’t really see the progression in the relationship and now we live together and I’m pregnant with our first child.
How the heck can we announce it without it being weird??

To all the new teachers out there- the most important thing you can learn is classroom management. I’m working with someone who doesn’t quite get it. Often lessons devolve into chaos. It seems to be as long as the kids are enjoying it - then it’s ok. You also need to learn is to help out - to help set up, help pick up, help in whatever ways are needed. Don’t wait to be asked. Put down the freaking phone and pay attention! Finally, try to learn from your coworkers. You don’t know it all!
