A teacher stood in front of her class, filled with second graders who were having a riveting math class on addition problems.

The kids were looking a bit lost with the explanations, so she turned to one of her students and asked him how old he was when he last celebrated his birthday.

Bright and cheery, the boy said he had turned seven on his last birthday. Encouraged by his response, she asked him another question. She asked how old he would be on his next birthday.

The teacher was surprised when her vibrant young pupil said he would be nine on his next birthday. The teacher was pretty sure her several years of experience could flag a wrong answer from a mile away. She said:

“That’s impossible!”

Her pupil smiled smugly and replied: “No miss, it isn’t. I’m eight today.” Here’s another story about a school teacher who got an unexpected twist in a conversation with a student.

On a fine Monday, Ms. Brown was looking out a window when she noticed one of her students, Bobby, making unkind faces at other kids on the playground.

That wasn’t the way to treat other kids and definitely not the way to meet friends! Ms Smith stepped out to the playground and approached Bobby. In a gentle tone, she said:

“Bobby, darling, that’s not a nice thing to do. When I was your age, I was told that if I made ugly faces, my face would freeze and I would be stuck like that forever.”

Bobby stared at Ms. Brown for a bit. The teacher was sure she had gotten through to him until he smirked and said:

“Well, I don’t know Ms. Brown, you can’t say you weren’t warned.”
