New Friends

It has taken some time, but the students are really starting to warm up to me. That being said, one student may be warming up a little too much.

R: "Mr. A, you finna sleep over at my house this weekend?"

Mr. A: "R, I don't think I can do that. It's not really appropriate for teachers to sleep over at their students' houses.

R: "Why, I ain't finna do nuthin' dusty, my mom said it was ok...she'll make chili dogs yo."

Mr. A: "Hmm, well I do love a good chili dog, but again, it's really not appropriate for a teacher to sleep over at a student's house."

R: "Have it your way. I'm finna be munching out on chili dogs while you're home by yourself on a Friday night."

L: "Ohhhh, you just got straight roasted Mr. A!"


  1. As a former student of the Minneapolis public school system, and having a father who taught 5th grade for a number of years, I have to say this is by far the most enjoyable blog I have ever run across in my time on the internet. Please don't let someone steal this and turn it into a best selling book before you do.

  2. Thank you, I appreciate that. Writing this stuff down is a way of maintaining my sanity. I have thought about turning this into a book when all is said and done. Looks like I should be finna get me a patent.
