Hablo Espanol

My ninth grader is in Spanish II this year with the same teacher he had for Spanish I. It’s going well, as opposed to last year when Spanish was a rather unpleasant experience for the student and the teacher. The following provides an obvious explanation for this change.

Mom: So, why are things going so much better this year with Ms. Profesora than last year?

Son: It’s so weird, she’s a WAY better teacher this year than last year.

Mom: Could it have anything to do with the vast improvement in your attitude about school?

Son: No, that has nothing to do with it.

What Mom thinks: Right, this veteran teacher of thirty years in the classroom suddenly changed her entire outlook on life over one brief summer, and the hormones and ever-changing moods of a teenager would never play a role in his ability to get along with authority figures.

What Mom says: Okay.

Why argue with such an insightful observation?

  1. Reminds me of Koby, again!! In his second or third year of Spanish, there was a new (to the school) teacher. After a few days, he came home and asked me if he could drop the class. I was informed that the teacher was too ugly for him to learn anything from her. I let him drop the class, if only for the most creative excuse ever!!
