me on monday: i am an esl teacher
i have been happily teaching on the high school level for the past six years or so, but this year i'm back to spending my mornings at the elementary school. you don't even know. i can put a high school freshman is his place in a split second with my evil eye, but these little bits of pink fluff at the elementary school are walking all over me. the problem is they make me laugh and they know it.
last week when i picked her up from class she said, "hey! let's go to the bathroom! i have to show you something!"
"i don't know, luma." i responded. "i can't get in trouble for you."
"no!" she said. "someone wrote a bad word on the wall!"
"oh!" curiosity piqued, i followed her through that wide gate and down that broad path and it was true. someone had indeed scrawled the word "but" in the middle stall. i acted properly scandalized for luma's benefit. she was utterly charmed.
and then the devil made me do it, i swear. i looked that sweet thing right in the eye and said, "luma, you know they didn't spell it right. that kind of but has two t's."
"get a pen!" she cried. "let's fix it!"
i have created a monster, albeit an extremely adorable one.
