Student: Do you have any food allergies?
Me: Nope, why?
Student: Would you want a banana chocolate chip muffin? I decided to make some for my teachers, and I thought, "Mr. Baumgartner might want one too!"
Me: Um, absolutely.
*end of lesson*
Me: Do you have those muffins with you?
Student: Oh, no, I haven't made them yet, but I'll bring you one tomorrow [Friday].
Me: Oh. I won't be here until Wednesday...
Sometimes teaching is a rollercoaster of emotions.
I have been teaching music across the Twin Cities since 2011. Along with seeing students grow as musicians and people, one of the joys of teaching is the ridiculous things my students say.
