Guest Speaker

Last year we had an NFL player come speak to our intermediate students about the importance of school. It quickly devolved into a Q&A session (mostly about football and the player's tattoos). Then it moved on to a singing session where he was handing the microphone to any brave student willing to perform. You'd think the principal would have wrapped it up by now, but no. And the crowning moment was when one of the fourth graders in my teaching partner's class got up and belted out, "I like big butts and I cannot lie..." all the way to the part about a round thing in your face. You get the picture. My teaching partner was bright red, but the student was beaming with pride for the rest of the day.
