Holiday Hypocrisy: A Teacher’s Dilemma

Me (correcting a kid’s work): “20 divided by 2 is 40? So you’re telling me that if I split these 20 cubes into 2 equal groups, I’d have 40 in each group? Does that make sense? Is it logical?”

Kid: “No.”

Me: “Exactly. So it can’t be true. Remember, you ALWAYS have to ask yourself does this make sense? Is it logical?

(moments later)

Kid: “Santa is real, right?”

Me: “Of course…”
