I'm still just getting to know my students and their awesomeness. Yesterday I was standing near a grade three boy I shall call Bruce. (FOIP! Ack!) Bruce was quietly working, and then suddenly he gasped and jerked back. I looked down at him to see what was wrong, and he was looking up at me with a terrified expression on his face. And then he said, "You're a witch!"
"Your fingers are too long! You look like a witch!"
He was genuinely scared of me.
My fingers are kind of long. Good thing he didn't see how long my toes are or he might have peed his pants.
