5 year old walks up to me with sweatpants, t-shirt, and a police hat on.

Me to a 5 year old: "What are you suppose to be?"

5 year old: "A robot."


Me (to a group of students): "Have you guys hit the age where you don't go trick or treating?"

Everyone: "No!"

6th grader: "You don't stop trick or treating until you are 33."

Me: "What happens when you turn 33?"

6th grader: "That is when you go as a 'sexy lion'."


Commenting on my mustache and wolf shirt as my halloween costume:

6th grader: "You are a dime a dozen in Maine."

At the end of the day a student played Justin Bieber's 'Beauty and the Beat' music video.

Halfway through the video the quietest 8th grader in the class says, "Who are these people?!"

We were talking about movies.

6th grader: "It is sooooo good!!!"

Me: "Oh yeah, give me two reasons why I should go see it?"

6th grader: "Well, for me, it was the best movie of 2011. And, for me, it was is the second saddest movie ever."

Me: "Well, it looks like we can't watch the movie on the screen."

Class: "What?!"

Me: "I don't have the right chord that goes into the laptop."

6th grader: "We can huddle around the laptop."

Me: "Not everyone will be able to see the movie."

6th grader: "That is how they do it in the Arctic!"
