so a kid crapped his pants monday and had to go call his mom to come bring him change of clothes, taught about microbial fuel cells tuesday and asking what they know about yeast, and some kid says is that like a yeast infection? and I say, no it's like yeast you use when baking bread, nurse came in to all my classes wednesday and spoke on HIV/AIDS, also I had two girls ask to go to the counselors cause kids were calling them strippers and hookers --this was because during spring break they both sent a topless picture to another 6th grade boy, one girl left her bra on the other didn't. so of course all parents were told and teachers were asked to stop any name calling or discussion in class about that between students. and today it was all about the Van Da Graaff generator hands on activity.
so a pretty eventful week, and overall it's really fulfilling doing what I love doing teaching and motivating and encouraging and sometimes just listening to KIDS. and with 6th gradeers, man! they are talkers when given a chance.
I'm not too excited about this weekend since we're supposed to get more than 4 inches of snow tomorrow evening. ha. I've also got to kick it into gear for teaching overseas next year. lately I'm researching Uruguay.
