Oh children…

5 Jun

I’m a teacher and am around children daily…obvs or I wouldn’t really be doing my job, right?  They amaze me with the way they think and process things.  How fast they learn and just the little things they pick up along the way. 

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the assumptions that they have about teachers.

Teachers live or stay in their classrooms….all the time

Not quite like this.  But, students are so surprised when they see me out and about in the community.  It’s like seeing the Tooth Fairy or something!

Teachers know everyone in the entire school

You get the idea.  Well, I got a new assumption the other day.  I was watching a group of students play a game.  One of the children was a new student and still getting used to the classroom.  This is how the convo went:

New Student – Miss G, Bob is your son right?

MG – No, he’s not…

NS – Oh, but he stays at your house, right?

MG – No…

NS- Oh, but he lives with you right?

MG – No…  Bob is not my son and does not live with me.  Did you live with your other teacher?

NS – Yes

MG – You lived at her house?

NS – Yes

MG – So you lived there and had breakfast, slept there, had dinner there, stayed there every day?

NS – No, but we had a sleepover there once!

MG – Ok, that does not mean that you lived at your teacher’s house.  That was a one time deal.

NS – Oh, but we had a sleepover and stayed there!

MG – I understand, but you live at your house with your mom, not your teacher.

The conversation went on from there, but is just a variation of what was said earlier.  This child is getting the award for being most inquisitive.  Surprised?
