This afternoon a situation come up where I was reminded of having to stop myself. Here's how it went down:
kid- "Hey Ms. H! Guess what?"
what I wanted to say- "chicken butt"
what I really said- "yes?"
Just one little fun example of how a teacher has to sensor themselves! Whenever a kid asks "guess what?" I ALWAYS have to stop myself from replying "chicken butt." At least it makes me reply "yes?" with a smile :)
