Students Attack!!! (Attack Me Back, That Is...)
It’s both funny and heartwarming when the students whom I painstakingly taught basic grammar to, such as Subject-Verb Agreement, have improved so much that they can finally attack me back from different angles...in an amusing way, of course. Here are some light moments with some of my students.
Me: And why are you laughing at my drawing??!!
Student: And why shouldn’t I??!!
After watching a video of a komodo dragon mercilessly attack a defenseless deer:
Me: I wonder what komodo dragons are for.
Student: Komodo dragons also wonder what humans are for.
Me: I am going on a date on Saturday night.
Student: Finally??!! Oh, God is Alive!!
Me: During my time, exam days were tough because our teachers would hit us on the butt for every mistake that we'd make.
Student: Oh, noooo!!!! Teacher, are you okay??!!
Me: Any unusual news today?
Student: My uncle finally took a shower last night.
Listening to a student put into practice what he/she has learned is truly rewarding for a teacher. Teaching, indeed, is a noble profession.
