Are you ever going to grow up?
Suggestions for the Middle School Teacher
I was on the phone with one of my dearest friends from my college days at
UNC-Greensboro recently. I don’t recall what we were talking about, but all of the sudden, she said to me while laughing, “Are you every going to grow up?”
Gosh, I hope not.
I’m 53 years old, and I suppose that technically, by now, I am a grown up. J
….But I have never wanted to act like a grown up…especially while I am teaching my middle school children.
Growing up has always sounded so awful.
As a child, after vacation time was over, I remember hearing the dreaded words, “Back to reality.”
And I often heard “Wait until you get into the ‘real world’”.
Sounds like a horrible place.
