Teenager talk...

I thought I would share some quotes from my students...each of these is interesting to me, as it shares a piece of their culture.

  • When I told the students they were not allowed to eat in the classroom, including cupcakes, a student retorted, "Miss T, you need to eat about 20 cupcakes. Men like thick women."
  • I have a student that likes to greet me with, "Hey girl!" At first this bothered me, now I find it kind of amusing.
  • After asking a student about her father, another girl chimes in, "Miss T, black people don't have Daddy's."
These are just a few of the things that I hear on a daily basis. I ask you to pray for each of my students.
