This one is from a former student...
His dad asked for his brother and he to clean up the kitchen... The brother balked and said he had more important stuff to do... my student looked at his brother and said:
I used to have to cut the heads off of chickens and pluck them for dinner, P. Cleaning the kitchen is much easier.

Now, isn't it just?

The gold at the end of the rainbow...

When asked for her great qualities, one of our kids states:
"I am dyslexic, beautiful and I do think that dogs can understand me."

One of our six year old kiddos was telling dirty limericks today... but we couldn't get a good handle of any of them to post here... Dammit!

And all during our "high stakes testing" I had the wonderful opportunity to spend 4 hours a day with one of my favorite kids... We spent most of the time when the tests were over looking for spies because she was convinced that these spies had populated the school with cameras in moths that were dead in the window wells.

It is these moments that make me happy to be a teacher.
