Surviving Middle School
Ms. M., the teacher in the classroom next to mine has, by her own admission, a quirky sense of humor. Recently she took a personal day to go to the funeral of a friend who had died after a long illness.
“How’s everything?” the principal asked Ms. M, when she returned to school the day after the funeral.
“Well, my friend’s still dead, if that’s what you mean,” Ms. M said.
It takes a weird sense of humor to survive—and thrive—in middle school.
