Students Give Back

An exchange from the last day of school with my grade fives and sixes at Mountview.

The scene: we exit the building to play Noodle Tag. It is apparently traditional for teachers to get the noodles.

M.: But you should want to play, you’ll get a noodle.

A: No, he isn’t a teacher. …Wait! You ARE a teacher now! Can’t you just teach here next year?

Michael: Unfortunately, there are no jobs here for me.

A: Who would you have to eliminate to get a job?

Michael: It wouldn’t matter, there’s a list of people who would get the job before me.

M.: Do you know their names?

Michael: Honestly, it would just be too many.

A.: Oh, don’t worry. My dad has a big knife-thing. So can you teach at our middle school next year?
