Kids Say the Darndest Things + Big News!

Aaaand I've branded myself as a middle-aged school teacher. 
But it's true- kids say the craziest things!
At Breakthrough, the program I'm teaching at this summer (confused? catch up here), the teacher are pretty young too- high school and college students. Last Friday was Thrift Shop Friday, and us teachers really pulled out all the stops for that one. 
harem pants are wonderful. 
Yesterday was Wacky Tuesday, and we were REALLY wacky!
This is me and a few of my students of my Block B biology class. 
I love 'em.

While grading, I came across a few gems that I thought I should share. 
This was from my journalism class. The students were supposed to interview a teacher for their reaction to the SFO Asiana Crash last weekend (Sidenote: my mom was supposed to be on that flight. SO THANKFUL!), and this is what I got. 
"Rahul is better than Hima." 
"Is there anything else you would like to say or ask?"
"HI MOM!" - Joseline, age 20.

Budget cuts- the universal excuse. 

The article was a total spoiler. What a pity. 

Can I get a "What-what!?" 
Oh, okay. 
I finally got my act together and started my food Instagram!
Follow me @healtherrific for amazing food pictures. 
Because we all love a little food now and then all the time.

Intrigued? Check my Instagram to see what these are!

Happy Wednesday, ya'll!

xo, Hima

  6. I think the answers are brilliant ;D Once I gave a art's class to juniors. They insisted me to draw a duck on the board but I ended up with fruits.
    "You are a teacher", sounds like "You are a wizard Harry" in my mind hah!

  7. Woah , these answers are taking the world on , I should learn something ( lots of actually) , dear teacher ;)
