Do As I Say, Not As I Do

One of our school mottos is “Be yourself– everyone else is already taken.”

So on the first day with the kids tomorrow, my also jewish, white, 30-something co-teacher and I are going to wear matching dresses, necklaces, and hairstyles.

Because leading by example is overrated and hard.

But wearing matching outfits is adorable and fun!

Don’t challenge me

Eric thought he’d challenge me to a “Who is going to have a more stressful day at work tomorrow” contest, the night before school starts. 

Me: “I’m sorry, but you could work triple the hours I work and my day tomorrow would still be infinitely more stressful than yours.”

Eric: “I have to hit my target for the quarter or I get fired!”

Me: “I have to not hit a kid all year or I get fired!”

I won.
