Why I Teach High School



(some of you may have seen this on twitter, but it was too funny not to share):


Yesterday in 5th period . . .

     student: Ms. Kiefer, what are ovaries?
     me: Female reproductive organs.
     student: Oh.  I thought they were shorts (motioning straps).
     other student:  No--those are overalls.  


Sometimes it takes everything in me not to crack up laughing at them.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in your classroom.

Up until my freshman year of high school I thought the pronunciation of obese was obeast. Made sense to my ears at the time.
