Oh, high school students...

Digressing away from my normal posts about Gage I wanted to share a conversation I had today with a student of mine.  She shall remain nameless (Q) because I am certain that noone else on Earth would ever spell her child's name like this and you know for confidentiality reasons.  Anyway, it went something like this....

Me:  Q, can I see you for a minute?
Q:  (rolling her eyes, she came walking towards me) 
Me:  Do you have anything else to put on?
Q:  What?  No, why? 
Me:  Don't you think your outfit is a little inappropriate?
Q:  None of the other teachers said anything, no, why?
Me:  Q, you have NO pants on! 

After I proceeded to tell her she would need to go down to see administration, she began chatting w/ her friends.  "There's all these white girls around wearing short skirts and you can see their booty and noone says anything to them".

Me:  Q, you have NO pants on....those girls are wearing something.

I tell you, my days are never boring.

*Q was wearing a T-shirt and leopard print pantyhose as her outfit today.  The windchill was in the 20's!

Oh.my.gosh! Seriously??????? You just made me really glad that I'm getting my certification in elementary ed. I'm sure there will be many challenges there too, but at least those kids' parents still dress them!

Are you sure Q wasn't at Princess Anne High School today in my 1A class? I said almost exactly the same thing to a senior. So true - it never gets boring at the high school level. Now, we've turned into the fashion police. 3 more semesters ... and I'm out of there.

Oh wow.. I love it. We see people dressed crazy in the ER, ALL. The. Time! I think they think it's normal to wear your boyfriends pajamas's or their hooker clothes to the ER. I'm not a fan, but whatever.

That's just insane.

When I was a senior in high school, my favorite teacher (who taught junior high) got suspended for telling a girl who wore CLEAR PANTS (see through plastic) that it was not appropriate and she should go home and change. Reason for suspension? The girl's mother called it sexual harassment that the teacher pointed out her pants. What on earth is this world coming to!?

SMH (shaking my head) at these children today. I'm wondering how she was able to leave the house with no pants on in that kind of weather. Crazy kiddos! (Have to chuckle a little bit too because I can totally see this conversation in about 10 years when Babygirl is trying exert her independence! lol)
