my kids....



I love this quote because it is so true and I think most teachers would agree with me.  I am a mom and a mathematics teacher.  Between both of these "jobs", I have between 83 - 103 kids.  This number changes with each new school year.   I may have only given birth to three of those kids but for 9 months I feel like I have closer to 100.   I care about these kids.  They matter.  Every year I meet a new group and every year they make an impact on me.  I get to know them.  What they like/don't like....which is usually math, but I don't hold it against them.  :)   By the end of the year, they know what I like and don't like as well.   I don't like Minecraft so I hope they don't hold that against me.   LOL!

So if you hear me say "my kids", you may need to ask me to clarify....do I mean my three red-heads, or do I mean my students?  Because often in my mind, they are all the same.

  1. Where is the "like" button? That quote is so true. It reminds me of that commercial where a man and woman see each other in a mall, and the woman says to the man, "I think you're the father of one of my kids." He nearly passes out.....she meant students.
