One of the things that I find so exhausting about being in a school environment is the hundreds of interactions I have in 7.5 hours. Sometimes in order to make some of those interactions less awkward or as short as politeness will allow, I lie. Also, to inspire and/or relate to students I lie. Sometimes it absolutely is necessary. Even though I know I am not 'supposed' to, I told some lies today.
8:30 am- Nice to see you too!
10:00 am- That's so cool!
12:00 pm- Nice to see you too, but I've got to run.
1:00 pm- Boys like girls who are good at math.
1:30 pm- That sounds like a good plan.
2:30 pm- No judgement, but...
And chances are pretty good that I'll repeat more than one of these tomorrow.
