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.
