Maybe we need to have a pronunciation lesson...

You never know what conversation you are going to have with a student...

During our morning work time this morning, a student came up to me.
"What's a va-giii-ta?"


Taken back, I sputtered out, "Wh...Wha...What??"


"A va-giii-ta? What is it?"


Motioning for the little boy to come closer I whisper, "Where did you hear that word?" ...thinking he must be repeating a word he heard on the bus.

"I didn't hear it. I just want to know what a va-giii-ta is."


"Okay. okay." Dear Lord... just stop saying that word!!!!!  "How do you know that word?"


"It's on the board."


"What??!!!"


"Choice A... I don't know what a va-giii-ta is."


"Oh. Fajita."

  1. Oh man, I wish you could be my child's teacher when she is in school. My husband is a public school teacher and it has made me lose all faith in the system..
