Winning is my main goal in all areas of my life, class included.
Sometimes being a teacher means acting like a 12 year old...
Girl: So that's the answer, right?
Me: Yep, exactly.
Girl (pauses a moment): Did you perm your hair?
Me: Um, no, my hair is curly. It's always been curly.
Girl: Weird, I don't think I've ever noticed that.
Me: You've been in my class for 9 weeks now.
Girl: Yeah, I know.
Boy (pipes in): I think it's dumb.
Me: What is?
Boy: Your hair. I think curly hair is dumb.
Me (deadpan): Well, I think your face is dumb.
Boy: I, um, oh...
Me (hands raised like a touchdown score): I win!
Boy looks confused and goes back to his reading.
