I'm not a teacher.


Having said that, I sure have graded a lot of papers in my day for not having that as my profession.

It actually might be a good thing too {for starters, I am in absolute love with my actual profession} because I tend to leave comments on the children's papers written in the exact same way I would have said them out loud ... which, might not be the best way.

For example, the other night I spent two hours grading essays on comparing and contrasting the film and book versions of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. I don't recall what the child wrote, but it was ridiculous. Quite ridiculous, actually. So my response? I put an arrow to the ridiculousness and simply wrote, "Uh ... no."

The student was quite ridiculous and I was quite helpful, no?

Speaking of quite, I was quite amused with the entire process. And the icing on the cake? This little gem.
Genius. Absolute genius, I say.

Of course the Hitler scene had to be cut out of the film version. He was dead. Obvi.

And, I think that is all I am going to leave you with today ... except for this little reminder of a BIG giveaway! Enter to win a Naked3 Pallete here!

heehee--oh, the thought of having Hitler portray himself in a movie. Awkward.
