5th Period Conversation Today

Scene: When I began writing the initial journal question on the board in room 102 today, an incredibly foul smell began to permeate the room. It immediately became clear that one of them had set off a stink bomb in my classroom. Did you know those actually exist? If not, consider yourself lucky. It's the foulest thing I've ever smelled in my life.

So we move outside to have class in the quad. Because several of my little darlings have severe ADHD, this was problematic, as there were people and classes walking by regularly.

ZT: Ms. Kiefer is one of those white girls who wants to be black. She probably listens to hella Keyshia Cole and wishes she was black.

GM: No I think Ms. Kiefer just hella cares about black people!

ZT: Ms. Kiefer, what kind of guys do you like? Do you crave black men?

***

I'm serious, y'all. This convo took place, verbatim, 10 minutes ago. God help me. I should also mention that I found ZT wandering the halls (stalking my office) this morning when he should have been in 4th period, so I personally escorted him up to Mr. Porter's room. All the way up there, he shouted through the hallways (and into classrooms): "BLACK PEOPLE DISTURB THE HALLWAYS!"

And in case there was any confusion, ZT is black.

XOXO, happy mid-week!

What an interesting life you lead Ms. Kiefer. I know you are keeping track of it here on the blog but I hope you are writing even more of it down because it would make a funny little book. I'm making jewelry today and all I can hear are the workers across the street putting my neighbors new roof on - seems quite boring in comparison.

ah ha ha ha ha! oh wow, that's hilarious, for sure! i was a teacher's aide with third graders, and while some of the things they came up with were pretty funny, i never had a conversation that good!

oh yeah, and i can see the georgia coming out with your use of the word "y'all." when i lived in pennsylvania, they'd never heard that word before.

Jenn said...

OH MAN How can you keep a straight face through all that? Seriously, what do you respond?

Claire Kiefer said...

Hahaha I definitely don't keep a straight face. I crack up laughing multiple times a day in that class.

Erika said...

Is it wrong that I kind of love ZT? He is a character if there ever was one!! :P

One of the reasons I kinda want to be a teacher one day. The weird ass stuff that comes out of kid's mouths!! hehe. =P

I unfortunately know that stink bombs exist. Someone set one off in the auditorium during an assembly in my middle school. Yeahhhhh....hmmm...I might have to rethink my first statement about being a teacher! hehe =)

have a good weekend lady!!
