I have been asked, "Are you pregnant?" more times in the last 8 months than I could have ever anticipated. Between my high schoolers in Racine who thought everyone was pregnant and my elementary students, they just don't understand social norms. Well, yesterday I had my funniest "are you pregnant" moment. I was working with one of my second graders when he looks at me and says...
Student - Are you pregnant?
Me - No
Student - Are you married?
Me - No
Student - Maybe you could marry me when I get older?
Oh did I have to hold in the laughter:)
Yesterday, I also found out I will be getting another student. So I will be up to seven students. I think I'm finally getting my schedule worked out. It is very exciting to be able to anticipate where I'll be throughout the day and to actually be helping my students! Starting soon, I'll also be testing the middle school kids who are being referred to the emotional behavior disorders program. So I'm definitely keeping busy, but I'm loving my job so far:-D
Tomorrow we have an all school field trip to the zoo. It should be a lot of fun. I hope the weather holds out!!!! Everyone at work knows how much of a freeze baby I am. I will be bundled up!
