So as most of you know I am now a substitute teacher in all its glamour. I decided to embark upon this journey because my ultimate goal is to become a high school English teacher, but with baby Yosi due in July, I figured I'd better wait on the certification process. So, I became a sub to sort of get my feet wet and give myself a chance to love or hate it before I jump in the deep end. I honestly have loved doing it and man there are funny stories that go along with it! I usually sub for middle school and high school because as much as I love the little ones, I have already done that for about 6 years at a daycare...I'm good. It's nice because Toby teaches at a high school so I just get jobs there a lot...which is funny because the kids always ask about us.
|My view from Toby's desk. Manolis subbing for Manolis. Hah!|
If you follow me on Instagram (yes, it's a private account because believe it or not, there are some WEIRDOS out there) then you can see some of the updates with the hashtag #subadventures . After realizing that I was writing down all the funny things my students say, I figured I'd better do some blog posts about it. Here are some funny things I have heard lately:
"My feet smell like socks... 'cause you know, some feet don't smell like feet."
"big booty hole!" (yes...randomly this was shouted)
*after asking a middle schooler why he didn't finish his assignment*
"If I tried to do this now, it would take more time than we all have life."
*after the kids realize I am Mr. Manolis's wife*
"I hope yo kid is just like Mr. Manolis, cuz he CRAZY."
These are the jokes, guys. Gotta love it!
