Dali's Elephants

Students say the funniest things sometimes, they lighten the mood when it is much needed. This comment was well received by me today when I needed it most.

A student told me that Elephants don't stay gray, they get brown because they tan in the summer.

Ahhhh what comic relief.

I wish I could go into detail, but lets just say that there are devastating moments in teaching. I was brought to tears today and that has never before happened in my teaching career.

No it wasn't because of management.

No, it wasn't because of a flopped lesson.

It was because we play so many roles as teacher, and sometimes it includes being a 'mom'.
