One of the perks of teaching junior high school is SPIRIT WEEK. Every few months, the Student Council produces a Spirit Week. It is designed to get everybody on the same page, celebrate our school community, and dress up.
Yesterday, I realized that I had spent the entire week in STRETCHY PANTS.
On ‘Merica Monday, I wore white sweatpants. For Team Tuesday, I was in blue stretchy pants with my Detroit Tigers jersey. Then, on Why Try Wednesday, I rolled out of bed and went to school in my dog pajamas. I pulled out my Lululemon tights, a giant gray sweatshirt without the neck, hot pink leg warmers and a headband. Looking like Olivia Newton John ready to Jazzercize, I taught my classes.
Finally, on Flannel Friday, I realized I spent the entire week in stretchy pants, eating chocolate and Red Vines.
Teaching junior high school has perks.
