Teacher: Pour your heart and soul into the lives of students. And occasionally provide entertainment for them...at your own expense. And all of the other millions of things teachers do.
Wife of Teacher:
-Always expect unannounced students...perhaps for dinner or perhaps needing a place to sleep for the night.
-Remember to text husband (not call) when he is in staff meetings, teaching, etc., etc.
-Don't let the kids use dad's school papers for coloring. or paper airplanes.
-Mandatory participation in your husband's never ending "great ideas" for student life.
Students had a hoot of a time wandering around the crowded shopping center looking for us. Darryl did a great job playing the role of a local moto driver and kept them looking for a long time. His dirtied clothes, motodriver gloves, and perfect role playing were a riot to watch.
I tried my best to play it cool as I avoided the stares of the general populace who were no doubt thinking I was part of the local Russian mafia. And when a few groups of teenage girls gathered thinking I was a celebrity (no doubt those goofy glasses were the key) I began to really sweat under that hot wig. But it was fun and some students never figured it out!
Worth it? For this gang, any day.
