So….I teach Spanish in Middle School, as I’ve mentioned before. And part of helping the students move seamlessly in the language is to have them pick a name in Spanish. I have a deck of cards with names for the boys and a separate deck for the girls. I have to do this because after twenty-one years of teaching I grew tired of students wanting to be: Jesús, Margarita, or Nacho Libre. Heavy sigh. Giggle. Rolling the eyes. Imagine the reactions to me having to say, “Jesus, you didn’t do your homework again?!” I taught in a Catholic school so you get the idea. 🙂
Anyhoo….I was in the midst of explaining the importance of picking a proper name to my group of seventh graders when suddenly one boy looks at me with a serious look and says, “You mean it’s like having a DOUBLE life!”
Ha! Ha! Ha! Uh…Yes…well….something like that.
I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. I love what I do for a living. I can’t believe I get paid to have so many giggles in a day.
