Tiny Tragedy #3: Note to self: stop wearing baggy sweatshirts and old jeans to Hebrew school because you might get hit on by a first grader.
I am a teacher's aide at a local Hebrew School. On Sundays, I teach kindergarten and first graders. Normally, these kids are a manageable handful. Some days are awful, others amazingly easy. I also really like these kids on an individual basis. They are so funny and sweet!
And then there's...let's call him Ben. He is funny and sweet also, but has a tendency to act out in class and does not always do as he is supposed to.
Today, Ben decided he would cease referring to me as "Miss Shirit" or even "Shirit" and began to call me "Hot Chick."
First off, I am trying to be professional. I get paid to make sure the kids learn something and stay out of trouble. That was the first inappropriate thing.
Now, let's remember that the age range is 4 1/2-7 years old.
Ben is 6.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's cute that he has a crush on the teacher or whatever, but seriously??
I guess I'll just have to get a real boyfriend so Ben's twisted little mind will take the hint and lay off.
Any takers? :D
