Conversation at work...

One of the main reasons I love my job is when you get moments to interact with the students in a fun or social way. One of these opportunities presented itself today. I was headed back upstairs after getting crushed ice (yummy crushed ice, how I love thee) from the training room. I saw one of my students was talking to another teacher. Here is how the conversation went:

As I pass by
Student: There is one of my teachers now...hi Mrs. Howard

Me: Hi!

Other teacher: She says I am mean, tell her I am not mean...

Me: She is mean...but not as mean as me!

Student: This is true.

Me: Who is your meanest teacher?

Student: You are (turns to the other teacher), she is!

Me: Thank you!

As I walked away, I looked back at the other teacher to see her flabbergasted face. She could not understand why I would want to be considered a mean teacher... I love the fact that the student acknowledged that I was mean, hopefully that means tough and strict! Either way, it made me smile!

Way to go! Yea, you're not there to be their buddy - act like a teacher!
