Why I teach first grade

This morning, one of my students was outside the door, putting her backpack away, while another one stood by my desk...

Me: What's Anne doing out there?
Student: Maybe she's playing Hide and Go Boo.
Me: I'm not sure I know how to play that...I've heard of Hide and Go Seek, though.
Student: Well, it's kind of different.
Me: How's it different?
Student: Well, it's kind of the same.
Me: (Laughs)
Student: Mrs. Harms, you're pretty.

And that's why teaching seven-year-olds rocks.
