While teaching senior high school can be challenging, I have often found it to be highly entertaining.
This morning in my Year 12 English class, I was in the process of assigning roles for my students to read as part of our study of Bertolt Brecht’s play “Life of Galileo”.
Student 1: “Can I be Galileo?”
Me: “Sure! Any other requests?”
Student 2: “I’ll be the Doge.”
Student 3: “That’s pronounced ‘douche’!”
General laughter ensued.
What a great way to start a Friday.
Man, I love those guys!
