One of the things that makes teaching relatively unique...

One of my kids was itching today, but not his head particularly, so I didn't think much of it. Plus, it's the summer and I have multiple kids with mosquito bites all over their arms and legs from being outside in the evenings.

Later in the day, I was walking around to see how they were doing on a paper, and this kid looks up to me, pointing at the side of his neck. "Do I have a flea on my neck?" he asks, clear as day.

And... yes, yes he did. A few minutes later he itched his head and said, "I hope I'm not getting lice again."


I have been itching ALL day.

Blech! That is NO FUN! I've somehow managed to avoid getting lice as a teacher--sorry to hear about your itching....

I don't think I actually have it. My head only itches when I think about lice and fleas!
