And this morning was my turn. The air was fresh and lovely, and I was happy to see all the students--happy face, sleepy face--. Most of them were sleepy faces, actually.
I got everything under control, smiling all authoritatively, until this small, 1st grade student came to me. As he shook my hand, we had this conversation.
Small, 1st grade student: "Missnya kok kecil sih?"So this small teacher was flabbergasted. I mean, how would you answer such question? Should I scream, "I'M NOT SMALL! Lots of your other teachers are smaller than me! I'm almost 160 cm, you know! Well, almost."
Small, 1st grade student: (Looking up, waiting for an answer)
Me: (Trying to find something smart to say) "Umm... Soalnya... "
Small, 1st grade student: "Good morning."
Yeah, like that would work.
Or maybe I should carry this picture around to show what "small teachers" look like.
|Now, THIS is a small teacher.|
