Teaching just gets better and better......
I spend time in the car trying to get to know the students, their life, goals, problems, etc.
I'm doing a drive early Saturday morning and one of my male students is very quiet. So, thinking I'm funny, I try to initiate some conversation with him that he wants NO part of. So I say, "You know what they say about students who don't talk much?".
He replies, "No."
I say, "They might grow up to be serial killers!"
He doesn't even blink...and says, "I don't eat much cereal!"
