Yesterday's blog got me thinking about different things children have said to their teachers.
A friend of mine was teaching in an inner city school in a disadvantaged area. It was tough going at times but she absolutely loved it. It was coming up to her maternity leave and she was a bit worried about how her class of six year olds would take to the fact that they would be getting a new teacher.
"Now, Class, I want to tell you that I won't be back after Easter. You will have a new teacher for a while, but she is very nice."
Wails and moans greeted her.
"Ah why Miss?"
"I'm going to have a baby."
The mood lightened and there were oohs and aahs. Then a little voice piped up.
"Dat's great Miss. Do ya know who de father is?"
I suppose the fact that it was her husband was a bonus!
