One of my favorite things about teaching is seeing the student grow up, from the beginning of the year to the end. As most of you know I am a blonde. One of the funniest moments in my teaching career was when I had a student who thought that all blondes were really dumb - he must have believed the jokes! I had to go to the length of bringing him my college transcript to show him I was actually really smart! After that he had nothing but respect for me. I still think it was hilarious!
