Be Mine

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 7.00.51 PM

I’m dreading the super-hyped up, sugar-coma induced, love-intoxified, hormone-driven, inevitable tear-producing day that will ensue tomorrow. Yes, for those of you outside a classroom, you may have to endure a day where the lady three cubicles away will act overwhelmingly surprised by the dozen roses her “sweet husband” sent to her. Or maybe you’re the poor sap who shilled out the money for the overpriced cliche of a present. Whatever the case, it’s safe to say that most of you adults out there will be living out your Valentine’s Day in your own adult way.

We teachers will be soothing the egos of rejected boys and girls, drying the tears of the girl whose boyfriend (if you can really call it that) “cheated” on her because he danced with her frenemy during the Valentine’s Day dance, and trying to encourage the shy one with the crush to just go on and give that special someone the sweet, handwritten note. Yes, there’s no doubt it will be an eventful day tomorrow filled with ups and downs, middle school drama, and an overpowering aroma of Axe in the air.  Wish me luck!

What’s your favorite middle school Valentine’s Day memory?

    Ha, ha! You are making me smile. I can’t WAIT to see our teens tomorrow. I have blocked out most of my own middle school memories thanks to my highly intelligent defense mechanisms — so, Valentine’s is nowhere to be found. At. All. And many moons later, even with a new partner I’m crazy about, the “holiday” can still kiss my ass.

    DANA:

    A MI ME ENCANTA VER EL ESPECTACULO DE LA ADOLESCENCIA EN SU MAXIMA EXPRESION EN UN SOLO DIA Y ESTE ES EL DIA INDICADO.
    POR ESO LES PERMITO QUE HAGAN UN BAILE YA QUE ES UNA FORMA DE AYUDARLES A LIBERAR DENTRO DE UN AMBIENTE SUPERVISADO SUS EMOCIONES, LAS CUALES PASAN DE LA NINES A LA ADOLESCENCIA EN CUESTION DE SEGUNDOS.

    QUE TU Y TUS TRES MOSQUETEROS, PASEN UN FELIZ DIA DE LA AMISTAD Y EL AMOR.
    GRACIAS A LOS CUATRO POR SU AMISTAD
    SAWABONA
    GILBERTO
