Well, I’m going into middle school and I’m pretty confident about it.
Just last week, I was helping Southwest Elementary School by sitting through a lesson with their candidates for open teaching jobs. While I was there, we read a story about a boy who is going into sixth grade and he is worried about these things:
-being late for school;
-falling in the toilet due to the eighth graders putting butter on the seats;
-no doors on second floor stalls; and
-a lot more homework.
When my mom asked me if I was worried about middle school, I replied: “Sort of, I heard that the eighth graders put butter on the seats so I will fall in.”
“Don’t be silly,” she said, laughing. “The eighth graders aren’t going to butter the seats. Besides, you’re too big to fall through!”
I scowled at that remark.
So I guess I could say that I’m pretty excited about middle school.
(Even if I do fall through the toilet!)
