I got this today – thought I’d share it with the group. My responses in italics:
Q. Today in my Spanish 2 class, I had a student name his ICI “Mike Hawk”. I didn’t get the nasty joke until I read it in front of the class and everyone snickered and laughed. I realized what happened and panicked inside. I wanted to yell at the student for humiliating me. I was very upset, but I kept face. This is also one of my best students in class, so that was even more disheartening. Teenage boys are teenage boys, I suppose.
