Science Teacher Rule #33

Junior High kids are in the middle of musical discovery.

They often have great tunes before they hit mass media, and the best stuff that never will hit the radio. And they love any way to express themselves. It told them on the first day how they can bring in music that we can listen to after I preview it for clean content and lyrics. I also mentioned how one of my favorite things is to get a "Mrs. Anderson Mix" from students. In the past I have been introduced to some interesting ukulele music, Swedish pop, and some of my new favorite punk bands.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a new record.

Within the first 24 hours of teaching and I have already received a personalized mix cd with such eclectic songs as Ch-ch-cha Changes and the lastest American Idol debut.

"I was bored last night so I made you a cd. My mom said I should put Weezer on there too so I did."

It's going to be a good year.

Aunt B says: How awesome!! Great record and good start! And may I have a copy of your favorite "mix" cd that would be fun for my room?

If Mom says add Weezer, that is definitely someone I want in my class! You can hand over the mix tape. :)

I remember when I used to give teacher's Christmas presents. But never random presents during the year. That is weird. Suck ups... :)
