Monday - Dress like an athlete
Tuesday - Twin Day
Wednesday - Super Hero Day
Thursday - Tropical Day
Friday - Crazy Hat and Hair Day
We always seem to have the Tues, Thurs. and Fri. choices. This was only the second time we have had Athlete Day and I was pumped. BUT then I was home sick on Monday and didn't get to wear any of the 3 possible outfits I had waiting. But on Super Hero Day no one quite knew what it meant as it is new. Everytime as student asked me if they could ........dress like (insert anything here) I said yes knowing that I was going to be fast and loose with super hero also. Sort of. When I was on FB the other night I saw that Joan Benoit Samuelson was going to be running Boston. My first thought was: maybe I'll see her. My second thought was: she is my hero. In fact she is my super hero. So I dressed up as............Joan Benoit Samuelson for Super Hero Day and got to wear my running clothes! I wore one of my race age group medals that had a red,white and blue ribbon and was gold as the Olympic gold medal of course. I'm sure JBS wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between the two. Then I printed her picture off the Internet and put in on my school ID. (Is there a law against defacing your work ID?)
You thought it was Joanie visiting some
classroom in Maine, right?
Are those AJH's arms or JBS's? I just
photoshopped on the head.
Those muscles are totally mine.
Of course I had to explain to my students (and sadly many adults) who my super hero was. The funniest and sweetest comment came from a student I taught math to last year. She saw me in the hall and she said,"I know who you're dressed up as- who your super hero is." I asked her who she was thinking of and she said, "Your daughter, right?" Of course I said yes. Out of the mouths of babes.......can come the truth. Sorry Emily I should have gone there myself!
