Today, I'm in a "BLAH" kind of mood.
Wanna know why?
Because I've been at school ALL DAY LONG with juniors! Yep, I'm still at school, watching my students work on their Podcasting project.
And I have to be at school half a day tomorrow, too. Now, I do appreciate the fact that I am here because I had Labor Day off and I will get Memorial Day off later. But right now, I'm not sure which I'd rather have because it sure would be nice to be home like all of my other teacher friends.
I've really had to give myself a pep talk, but it didn't seem to be working.
So, 6th period, I had a student find the cure for my blahs.
We are making Podcasts in class entitled, "Christmas Means." They include "Christmas Means" statements, pictures, and voice overs. The students have fun with them, and I enjoy watching their final products.
Today, after everyone was through in 6th period, I hear, out of the blue, one of my students (who happens to be one of my favorites...shhh, don't tell anyone) say,
"IT WOULD HAVE BEEN COOL TO BE JESUS' STEP-DAD" (referring to Joseph, of course)
And I'm not sure why now, but I DIED laughing! I couldn't stop. I thought it was hilarious, but I think it was partly because of who it came from, too.
