The Joys of Fatherhood
Well, I'm not exactly a father, but for the next four weeks I will sure feel like one. Having 11 grade 8 students here will surely be an interesting test, but it has been wonderful so far.
This morning gave some unique insights into my students that are not part of a typical day of school. This morning's wake up came a bit early, with one of the students having a bit of an upset stomach. A short bit of shuteye later, and I took on my biggest challenge: the stopped-up toilets of our delightful bundles of joy. I was proud to deliver several lessons on the finer points of the standard Yunnan plunger technique . . . as well as some no-so-delicate descriptions of how we might change our habits a touch in order to avoid overtaxing the innocent toilets.
They don't teach this stuff in teacher training, but they sure should!
