I Wish I Had Time

I Wish I Had Time

I wish I had time to tell you all of my student teaching stories.  I still have 23 class days to go, but I am already armed with an arsenal of student stories, enough stories to fill a separate blog.

I wish I had time to tell you about the first time that I taught math.  I later compared the experience to a fish teaching chickens how to climb a tree.  Thankfully, the second day was more like a squirrel teaching chickens how to climb a tree.

I wish I had time to tell you about when we tried to melt butter on metal spoons.  It was my first science lesson, and the science teacher said that the kids were “ready to start a mutiny.”  Then the butter melted, and they thought it was the coolest thing ever.

I wish I had time to tell you about how a girl threw up on her way into English/Language Arts, and five kids left “sick” within 1/2 hour.

I wish I had time to tell you about when I poured alka-seltzer into Diet Coke to start science class.

I wish I had time to tell you about playing grudge ball.

I wish I had time to tell you about the students that thought they were reading about a “cham-e-lon” instead of a chameleon.

I wish I had time to tell you about the girl that wrote a letter to Sunbutter.  Here is an excerpt:

Another reason that I am so fond of Sunbutter, is that it is processed in a facility that doesn’t handle any peanuts or tree nuts.  It states this fact on the label, meaning that it’s true.  If this wasn’t true, then it would be false advertising, which is illegal.

I wish I had time to tell you about the girl who does back tucks across the soccer field during recess.

I wish I had time to tell you about the Chromebooks that didn’t work when my school advisor was there to observe me.

Since I don’t have time to do all of these things (in fact, I have to read 60 more pages of Because of Winn-Dixie tonight), I hope this post will suffice.
