A Phillie Teacher

I was a starry-eyed teacher from New Jersey. Now I work for Philadelphia Public Schools.

Questions. I get questions.

I’m an object of interest for my students. I’m always being asked if I’m married , if I have any kids and do I have a boyfriend. That comes with the territory and I don’t usually answer them. I hate talking about myself.

Yesterday Student Y stopped me in my tracks. “Ms. X, do you have any tattoos?”

Great question! As a matter of fact I don’t, but this breath of originality was refreshing. I didn’t give her an answer her but Ky’ia was so surprised by my enthusiasm about (finally) a question with some originality, she didn’t notice.

Do people in offices get nosy questions like this from their clients? or fire drills or a school nurse who comes around to warn people about head lice?
