Even though I have no plans of becoming a teacher, I’m in my second year of ROP Child Development classes. That means that I get to have an internship at at kindergarten class every morning, and earn a bunch of useless college credit.
So yesterday morning I was with my class and they were working on coloring something.
“Finnigan*,” I said, “What nice flowers you’ve drawn!”
“Thanks,” replied Finnigan smugly, “when I grow up, I’m going to be an artist.”
“When I grow up,” added Marshall* from across the table ,”I’m going to be a snake-hunter!”
“A snake-hunter?” I questioned.
“Well, on Mondays I’m going to be a doctor, but the rest of the week I’m going to be a snake-hunter.”
Good for Marshall. I hear that snake-hunting is a really viable career option right now. His specialty is going to be pythons, in case you were wondering.
