I came out of a meeting and ran smack into a fifth grade girl with a concerned look on her face.
"What's better, Puma or Nike?"
"Um, I don't know, I have never thought about it."
"Well, which do you own more of?"
"I don't know if right now I own anything by either one."
Silence and look of shock.
"I don't think I own either brand."
She shook her head and walked into the group bathroom, where I could hear her exclaim to her friends, "She doesn't own either brand!!"
This is my first year in fifth grade as a teacher. I obviously have a lot to learn.
