The Video


I had been working with some 5th grade girls in advanced math on a weekly basis and was surprised when they didn’t show up one day for our math meeting. Later I saw one in the hall and asked why they had missed thier math session to which she replied, “All the girls had to watch THE VIDEO today.” Unthinkingly and a little densely I said , The Video? To which she replied, you know THE VIDEO.” Finally getting it, I said oh that video, I’ve already seen it… The look of horror on her face would have gone viral in minutes.”

About safrisri

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
