MR. BOWERS:  Kindergartners, what do you do when you get scared?
YOUSEF:  I hide out under my bed!
PARKER:  I think about unicorns...and princesses coming to save me.

...and then there's this:

JONAH:  I'll just get my mom to get me a lightning sword with an axe on it.

Ok, two gross things have happened this week at my JOB.

1.  One of the 2nd graders left a used band-aid inside one of the puppets.
2.  One of the Pre-k'ers decided it was a good idea to poop on the sidewalk, and some other random kid accidentally stepped in it and left a poo trail.

I love my job!

I have been growing a beard for four months now, and I am starting to get some interesting things said to me by the kids:

Kindergarten:  You look like a Beard.
1st Grade:  Is that a real mustache?
2nd Grade:  Did you grow a beard?
3rd Grade:  Hey, Santa.
4th Grade:  Do you use conditioner in your beard?
5th Grade:  When did you grow a beard?

(Mr. Bowers enters his room of First Grade Drama Students  and quickly downs a bottled water.)

HAWA:  Why you drinkin' so much water?
MR. BOWERS:  I'm trying to lose weight and water is good for you.
HAWA:  Milk will help you lose weight.
MR. BOWERS:  Milk is good for you, but if you drink too much of it, you'll get fat.
HAWA:  My mom drinks skinny milk.

English as a Second Language 2

Many of our students have English as a second language and that leads to some great moments...like this one:

ISHAN:  Mr. Bowers, I went to Sonic and I got to have a HOG DOG.
