I subbed for another 3rd grade teacher today. I was actually in the room right next door to where I was yesterday. This resulted in a lot of hugs and shouting of "HI MR. C.!" throughout the day. Apparently, I'm the only "nice" sub they have ever had.
Right at the very start of class today, a little girl came up to me...
Girl: Hey, I have something to tell you, but it's very sad - my dad died.
Mr. C.: ...oh, wow, I'm very sorry. Um... when did this happen?
Girl: When I was six. I'm 9 now.
Mr. C.: Oh......... Why are you telling me this?
Girl: Just so that everyone knows.
Mr. C.: ...Alright...well, I'll keep it in mind.
