A Day in the Life

What I’m about to type actually happened in my classroom, forcing me to almost pee pants as I began to laugh with my students. It’s these kinds of moments that make me love teaching.

We were discussing a Newsweek article about Facebook. This discussion led us to a subject very closely related to the very Orwellian society we are living in. So I asked:
ME: Have any of you read 1984?
Students: Blank looks and silence, some heads shaking no.
ME: No one?
Student: In case you ain’t noticed yet Ms. [Insert my name here], we ain’t no readers in this class.

I love my job.
