M.W.

So you know how when you're a kid and adults and teachers don't have first names? They're just "Mrs. So and So"...

Well, one of my sweetest students made me these plastic initials:


Yes, my initials are M.W. So much for my first name. It's just Mrs! Mrs W.

Is this not the sweetest most thoughtful gift? I keep it on my window sill in my classroom and it always makes me chuckle and reminds me why I love my job on the worst of days.

(Also, love the old school plastic bead things you make and melt with an iron. Anyone else love these as a child? I had no idea they were still a thing.)

  2. That is so funny! When they find out my name is Brittany they're usually in total shock. They always ask me at least 2 or 3 times if that is really it. Nope. I'm lying.

  6. When I was a kid I loved to play with those beads, but would never melt them. I would just create designs, then dump them and start over... hah! I had no idea those even still existed!

  7. OMG I totally had those plasitic melty beads thing! I'd made a design and then my Mom would iron it (becuase, hello, irons are not safe for lil kids). I loved those! Stoked to see they are still around.

  8. I worked at an after school program for about 8 years though HS and Collge, and we used those beads to entertain the kids for hours! I can't tell you how many I made!

  9. I can still remember a time when I ran into one of my students on a Saturday. It took him a minute to come to terms with a me outside of the classroom.

  11. Hilarious!!!

    I told one of my 7th graders that my name was Amanda. They freaked out. IT'S SO WEIRD that teachers have first names! haha
