Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...


Very Smart and Totally Sincere Student Quoted

Very Smart and Totally Sincere Student: Are you our sub(stitute teacher)?

Me: Yes

Very Smart and Totally Sincere Student: You're too pretty to be a sub.

Me: Well...thank you! Flattery will get you everywhere.

See? This girl is smart, if not a bit myopic. Maybe this gig isn't so bad...

...HA! Gotcha.

Too pretty to be a sub? :) Well, I haven't met you yet but from what I've gathered from Nicki your student might very well be right. However... when are you too pretty for a certain position? And if there is such a thing, does that mean that one in that position can rest assured that he or she isn't "too pretty"?

i don't know, but i wish that more students would take the "brown nose" approach to teacher-student relations.
