Fred McFeely Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003)
Oh. Sobbing. Okay.
8th grader: “I can’t ballroom dance. I’m 14!”
Me: “Ooh looks like Katie has figured out what I’m gonna sing.”
Katie (kindergarten): “That’s because I have a brain.”
2nd grade student: (While gesturing to my clothes) I just love everything about what you’re wearing.
2nd grade student: “So if I was a teacher I would be called Ms.?”
Me: Yes. And then if you were married you would be Mrs. with your husbands last name if that’s what you choose to do.”
2nd grade student: “YOU TAKE YOUR HUSBAND’S LAST NAME?”
6th grade student: “Who’s the composer of the month?”
Me: “Johann Pachelbel”
6th grade: “Last month was Johann Sebastian Bach. Do you have to be named Johann to be a famous composer?”
2nd grade student: “I have something to ask you” (Student pulls out piece of paper from her pocket). “Will you do your (reading off the sheet) Louis Armstrong impression for us?”
Pretty sure her older sister had her ask, but it’s funny that she had it written down and everything.
Me: “Okay boys and girls, now that we’ve identified this movement from Carnival of the Animals as the lion, we’re going to move to the music like lions. But, you need to stay on your carpet square.”
Second Grader: “No! You’re keeping me in my cage!”
6th grader: I want to be in a comedy with Josh Hutcherson.
I just assigned a research project to 7th grade they have to pick a country and give a presentation about the music.
One student asked..
7th grade: Can I pick England because Adele is from there?
