Last night was our school's Athletic Banquet! Jessi mistook this for a lesbian convention, and I am having a hard time not disappointing her by disagreeing. How times have changed in female Phys Ed. These teachers rock killer dresses, heels, and love to party.
|I went with trusty blue... fashion is worth knee pain.
I, of course, love to dance... so a few kids came up to a fellow teacher and myself and started a dance battle. It's one team against the other. Well... it turned into a full on battle between teachers and students. We busted out such classics as the Running Man, the Roger Rabbit (kids had NO idea what this was... damn, I'm old), the Fish Hook, and good old push ups. A colleague of mine came in at JUST the right time (we were about to fail miserably) and busted out an amazing breakdance. The kids went WILD. We had screaming fans and our photos taken- we were celebrities! Again, how times have changed. I'd never be caught dead dancing with my teachers.
After the banquet we went to get a drink (AMEN... these events should really be licensed, for our sake) and this made me feel amazing about my choice to drink at midnight:
|Now THIS is what I call a workout.
1. How do you give back?
Coaching is frustrating, thankless, and exhausting... but it allows me to connect to the kids on a different level, and something about seeing your students excel (or not!) is very gratifying to me.
2. Tell me your favourite workout!
I'll have to go with the one above... bicep curls with my martini.
