An Age-Old Trick

| Learning | February 5, 2016

(I am a substitute teacher, and though I’m 21 years old I like to try and hide that from the students, especially if they’re in senior high. I’m in a 9th grade computer class one day and a girl calls me over.)

Student: “Miss [My Name], where did you go to school?”

(I actually was homeschooled, but this is another thing I try not to share with students.)

Me: “Ummm… I graduated high school and college at the same time.”

Student: “Really? When was that?”

Me: “I am not going to tell you that.”

Student: “Why?”

Me: “Because I know you’re trying to guess how old I am.”

Student: *shocked* “How did you know that?!”

Me: “Because you’re not very subtle.”
