Let's recap 3rd period on Halloween day. As I walked the aisles checking to make sure that each student completed the narrative outline, I got stopped by a student, who very seriously, asked if I was dressed up as Peter Pan for Halloween. I quickly analyzed my response choices for her. Do I pretend like I dressed up, even though it's just my green teacher dress? Do I scold her for making a disrespectful comment? Do I get on her case for talking when she should be doing work? I went for choice A.
Why, yes, this is my Peter Pan costume. And then I went on my way checking outlines.
I chuckled to myself all day; wondering how many students were actually thinking I had tried to dress up today. Fail green dress.
I kid you not. No sooner than I walked in the door to visit my family on Halloween, the comments were flying about the dress. After the comments I admitted to them that my students thought I was Peter Pan. This conversation resulted in this picture being mass distributed to Bratts around this great nation of ours. Leprechaun or Peter Pan, apparently this green dress is a multi purpose Halloween costume.
