Four eyes

Two true things about students: They hate change. And they are brutally honest. That said, when I showed up wearing a new pair of glasses, what did I hear from them?

A. "You look like such a nerd!"
B. "Hello, grandpa."
C. "Scary!"
D. All of the above.

Came in with a new haircut and was asked "Ms. B.! What happened to your head?!" So much for my hip new look...

Wore a somewhat tight-fitting sweater that revealed my gut once and a kid said, "Do everyone a favor and don't wear that sweater ever again."

just imagine how they must talk to each other. I would have said "A", but a cool nerd

Actually, the comments went something like this:
Student A: You look like such a nerd!
Me: You mean a cool nerd?
Student A: No way! More like a grandpa.
Student B: Hello, grandpa.
Student C (walking in late and seeing me): Scary.

Later in the day a kid I taught last year peered through my door and said, "I just stopped by because I heard you got glasses. Nerd!!!"

etc. etc. etc.
