One Small Problem With That

| MA, USA | Learning | August 16, 2013

(I’m giving an exam to my students. About 20 minutes into the exam, a student approaches my desk.)

Student: “I’m having trouble with the answer; it’s really small!”

Me: “Lots of our examples have really small numbers; that’s not necessarily a problem.”

Student: “Hmm, okay.”

(He sits back down, and about 15 minutes later, comes back.)

Student: “I’m still not sure I’m right. Could you check over my work and tell me if my answer’s right?”

Me: “You want me to tell you if you’re getting the right answer?”

Student: “Yeah, could you?”

Me: “No, I can’t give you the answer during an exam.”

Student: “Why not?”

The Littlest Kids Do The Sizing Up

| IN, USA | Learning | August 16, 2013

(My fiancé and I are both assistants at the same school. I am walking some first graders back to class, when we pass my fiancé in the hallway.)

Little Girl: “Hey, look! There’s Mr. [last name]!”

Me: “Yeah, I see him!”

Little Girl: “You’re going to marry him?”

Me: “Yep, I sure am!”

Little Girl: *earnestly* “Does he know?”

Me: *trying hard not to laugh* “Well, yes! He’s the one who asked me!”

Little Girl: “And you said yes?”

Me: “Yep!”

Little Girl: shocked: “But you’re not even the same size! He’s bigger than you are!”

(As a 5′ 1″ full grown adult, I’m very glad marriageability isn’t based on size!)
