Day 11: My 4th period and I were discussing the similarities and differences between The Hunger Games novel and the film. One of my students called out "Mom" when he was trying to get my attention to answer a question. A couple of students giggled, to which I replied, "You all are my kids!" A student chimed in, saying "Miss, you adopted me...right?! Then she said her name finishing with my last name. We all laughed and went back to the discussion. I am glad my students see me as a mother figure, someone they trust and someone they know cares deeply!
