South Dallas Swag, My first day, and Why teaching keeps me young

I'm going to just say this year is going to be interesting.

Student- Ms. D do you know how to do the South Dallas Swag

Me- Uh no.  I'm not sure what it is.

Student- It looks like this.  (Envision 7 yr old version of this vid)

Me- Oh no, I definitely can't do that.

Student- Well you're white so that's probably why.

Me (laughing)- What if my great great great grandfather was black?  (true fact,  based on a picture)

Student- No that won't help you.

Me- aww man!

Seriously.  Teaching rocks.  Just saying.
