Why I love teaching in Utah

I teach in a very unique place. 95% (or possibly more) of my students are LDS.  It isn't uncommon that I hear a student comment start with something like, "Yesterday in Sunday School....".

I love it.

It cracks me up every time.

What did I hear today from half of my class?

"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent...."

Apparently they were seeing if they could recite all 13 articles of faith.

Such great kids.

And in the same class I heard all about a kid's probation officer.  

I guess there's a little bit of diversity here.
