We’ve been discussing high school fairly often in class and the more we share our stories of this time the older I feel. When I share a story from my sophomore year I’m bringing up something from 10 years ago, most of my classmates were still wetting the bed 10 years ago.
Today we were discussing student behaviors when it dawned on me that my views may be out-of-date. Do kids still deal with the nonsense that I did? I had thought so, I was sure that teens never changed and we all just watched history repeat itself numerous times over. Am I wrong?
I always have this feeling of being old when I sit in my classroom filled mostly with 18 year olds, but today was the first time I felt outdated — I didn’t like it.
I’m too young to feel so old.
