"Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence." Robert Frost
I'm three weeks back in the classroom and life is settling back into routine. I thought I'd share a few of my favourite quotes from my students.
History lesson: When I popped out of Mammy's tummy I had a drink from her boobies"
Story time The tension was building as the children listened to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk " And the giant was chasing Jack down the beanstalk".......Child "Be the f##k!"
News time: "My mam is getting a new baby, you know those pills you take to stop having a baby, well she lost them and Daddy is quare mad"
"We grew a carrot at home. It was bigger than Daddy's shoe and bigger than his willy"
Miss are you getting a new baby?
Child "Well my Mammy has a big tummy and she's getting a baby"
But a four year old charmer made my day when I arrived at school this morning, wearing a dress. "Miss, you look like a princess" He'll go far!!
