Skills class. Yes, you heard me right. Skills class. Not math class. Not science class. Not english class.
Skills class. You learn skills. Social skills, that is. And I love being part of it, teaching something I have very little skill at.
And I can’t go as often as I want to, which makes me sad.
But today, I wanted to visit Skills class badly. So off I went to find Mr. M (The Skills Teacher). And I see him watching this with all the kids (sorry, I can’t find the exact version I watched with them… but here’s a taste of the awesomeness):
YES PLEASE! And this is what goes on in Skills Class. This is why I love it. I love Mr. M. Teaching social skills to kids who really need them.
And Mr. M still needs to sing me the “Betsy from P***” song… with one of the students – opera style. Yes. I heard them practicing together. Opera style. It’s impressive.
Believe it. True stories.
This is my hot life.
