Ms. T, that was the best first day ever. All my other classes were so boring....– One of my general-level seniors, who high-fived me as he walked out the door. So much love for these kiddos.
The Hunger Games
Student #1- If the whole staff were in The Hunger Games, who would win?
[A 15-minute conversation ensues, in which a group of students discuss this scenario in detail]
Student #2- What would happen to Ms. T?
Student #3- She's little, so she would climb a tree. Obviously.
Student #2- Like Rue!
Student #4- Yeah, and then she would die. And inspire a revolution.
Me- Thanks! ...I think.
