Student Quotes of the Day

It's been quite some time since I've written down funny student quotes.  My 9th graders were being so funny this morning.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Student:  Lacey, you'd make a great old lady.
Me: Wow, that might be the best compliment I've heard all day.  Explain.
Student:  Well you're nice, you tell good stories, and you're good at cutting fabric.

"Lacey, look at how big my button is.  It's so obese!" (It was quite large...probably a 2" diameter...in case you were wondering)

We were listening to a Taylor Swift song and someone said, "I don't like Taylor Swift."  This other girl literally dropped what she was doing (a rotary cutter, in fact...never good to drop a sharp blade when it's unlocked) and said with a shocked voice, "You don't like Taylor Swift?  ARE YOU AMERICAN???"

haha, I LOVE it! It's awesome that you can get such funny quotes all the time from these kids that are supposedly "grown up!" :)

haha. Speaking of grown up, we were just watching a video where two adults (about 40 years old) were kissing. The kids were so squirmy and one kid said, "Sick! Grown-ups shouldn't kiss!" :)

Ba ha ha!!
I had one of my athletes (who is 15 and in LOVE with a senior but too scared to talk to him) say, "Come on Carie, I'm NOT a child anymore. I'm NOT going to go giggling my head off to him." So funny. :)

I love these student quotes. They make me miss teaching middle school kids, slightly.
