Junior High is the age when most people have their first real relationships, get their first kiss and receive their first heartbreak. As a teacher I am privy to all the declarations, miscommunication and advice columnist that take place in the halls- sometimes I'm even on the receiving end . . .
Female Student: "He broke up with her, but he told her he'd ask her back out in two weeks."
Female Student: "Stop touching me, you do not have to touch me every time you walk by!"
Male Student: " Girl please, you better be happy you gettin' touched cause don't nobody else want to."
Male Student: "Miss I need teachers to stop given homework, I can't see my girlfriend with all this homework. I haven't seen her in a month- she could have another boyfriend by now."
Male Student: " She is so pretty, I love her so much. I love how pretty she is and I want to buy her everything she wants"
Me: " Do you just love her for her looks? I'm sure her looks-"
Male Student: " Miss, I'm in the 8th grade."
Male Student: " I dated an older girl and she was not as controlling as her. You can't give a girl your facebook password, you cell phone password, myspace password, twitter password and do everything she says. I don't care how pretty she is or what she gives you in return."
