Language Clean-Up

***Please excuse the profanity in this post. If you are offended by the use of profanity, you may want to pass on this one. And you should probably never visit my classroom.

Student (in conversation with other students): "That's hella fucking stupid!"
Me: "Come on, you can think of a better way to say that."
Student: "I'm sorry! I mean, that's hecka fucking stupid."

Ok, one teacher to another: how do you not laugh in front of the kids when they say stuff like that?

Geetha said...

Yeah, I just laughed. And laughed directly at the kid too. Not with her, at her.
