But, Teacher! I am a girl!

20 October 2009

So…I have this student.  Hangs out with the boys, fights with the boys, sits with the boys, dresses like the boys, looks like the boys.

We played a game in class today.  Two teams.  Girl team vs Boy team.

I started to separate them.  I told this student to go with the boys.

“But, why Teacher?”

“Why ‘why?’ You are a boy, you go with the boys.”

“But, Teacher!  I am a girl!”

I wasn’t the only one fooled.  Half the students turned and gasped and immediately questioned the student in Korean.  Indeed, she is a girl.
