crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

IT HAPPENED AGAIN IN MY CAREER!  I had a student gasp at the fact that I had to go to college to get my art teaching job.  Wow.  This was another bump in the road of this fabulous Thursday.

First, I wake up with a headache.  Second, I had a list of crazy to do when I got to work.  Third…BAM!  “You don’t have to know anything to be an art teacher.”

I gave myself a short break to go get a drink of water and remember THIS IS A CHILD and really has no idea what she is saying.  It’s like when I was 23 and my middle school kids told me they thought I was 45.  haha!  They just have no clue.

Really.  At 23, I looked 23! I promise!

So, how do I defend myself to a child that believes I am stupid?  I don’t.  I don’t have to.  I know that I’m intelligent.  I know that she has no idea what I had to go through to get this job.  I know that I worked in college just like every other college student.  She doesn’t even understand how to get out of high school yet.

Do I need her approval?  Nope.

I have a degree.  I have a job.  I am a confidently wonderful art teacher.  I’m an ARTIST.  I’m a teacher.  My headache is pretty much gone.  My list is shorter. I’m happy.
