Through the meltdowns, socially awkward moments, and cringing outbursts, my middle school students with their unique challenges say the cutest things:
Teacher: "Has anyone read an autobiography?"
6th Grader: "Does Amelia Bedelia count?"
"Isn't it a wonderful thing being a mother?"
-7th Grader, in reference to me while staring at my growing belly
"I'm highly disappointed in the staff here."
"Maybe it's time for your first haircut."
-7th Grader, in reference to my very long hair
"I'm actually a lot better at math than my mom is."
Setting: Spanish Class
Me: "Do you understand what to do for homework?"
7th Grader: " Well, no. The teacher doesn't speak English and I don't understand Spanish."
