Things my students say


Teaching at a high school is fun. It can also be confusing, frustrating, entertaining, and just strange.

Here’s a list of some of the weird, hysterical, and wonderful things that my students at SMAN1 Panawangan have said:

  • “I love all my shoes.”
  • “In this moment, I will tell you about my favorite jacket.”
  • “This peci is my best friend.”
  • “My love will never cease ’til the end of time.”
  • “I’ve already been loving my mother since I opened my eyes. She is my heart, world, life, everything.”
  • “How do you express love?”
  • “Do you kidding???”
  • “The people in the kingdom were thirsty for a child.”
  • “I like writing because I can pour out my heart and my mind.”
  • “Miss, you are high strung!”
  • “If I am able to speak English very well, I would be very easy walking paths around the world.”
  • “I feel satisfied when my dreams come true.”
  • “My mother is blah, blah, blah.”img_2295
  • “It’s raining men!”
  • Me: “The building looks like a hut.” Student: “Like Pizza Hut!!”
  • “Dolphins can grow up to seven feet, wow!” Thinking seven feet, not seven feet in length.
  • “He works as a SPIDERFIGHTER!”
  • I ask, “When you meet someone, what do you want to know first?             Student response: “Their dreams!!”
