Since I teach after school until the early evening, my husband often gets home from work while I am teaching. My students are always fascinated to learn that their teacher is a real person with a family just like them! I often get funny reactions when they notice my husband arrive home from work. A few of my favorites:
- "There's a man in your house!" One of my students whispered this to me one day during his lesson. I turned quickly to see my husband walking by the door. I reassured my student that it was okay and explained who it was. For the next two years of lessons my student insisted on calling my husband "that man."
- "You have another customer!" My student yelled this out when he saw my husband come in the door.
- And my favorite: "Mr. Chrissy is home!"
