How Do You Say MacGyver In Spanish?

| Learning | December 16, 2015

(I am a high school Spanish teacher. One day, the projector in my classroom is not functioning properly. While the students work independently, I decide to climb up on a desk so I can reach the projector and try to fix it. The following conversation ensues:)

Student #1: “Mr. [My Name], what happens if you break that thing?”

Me: “Then you’re all sworn to secrecy.”

Student #2: “Your secret is safe with us. You’re one of the few teachers we all like.”

(I manage to fix the projector and get it turned back on. A few minutes later:)

Student #3: “He can teach Spanish and he can fix things?! What a guy!”
