THE QUESTION I WAS ASKED MOST FREQUENTLY WHILE WORKING AS A SCIENCE TEACHER AT AN URBAN HIGH SCHOOL

Constantly. Daily.
  1. You pregnant? You pregnant, miss?
    Even after I explained that made me feel self-conscious. My female students explained they just REALLY wanted me to have a baby.
  2. (Follow-up I received 50% of the time: You sure??? *knowing look*)
    I don't miss much about teaching (such a hard job!), but these cute+ridiculous interactions with my students make me a bit nostalgic.
