It’s very humbling to have hundreds of students watching you every week. The power of so many students results in an extremely perceptive bunch. I have learned a lot about myself.
Whenever the students do an impression of me, they put on a big goofy smile, walk into something and drop anything they are holding. Whenever a student spills or drops something the other students tease them by calling them Katie-Sensei (what the students call me).
I didn’t get it at first, until I realized how ridiculously clumsy I am. I have bruises on my hips right at the level of the kids desks, I had no idea what they were all last semester until I ran into a desk yesterday, and suddenly my bruise was back.
Now that I’ve noticed, I cannot believe how absurdly clumsy I am. I really need to work on it, but frankly I have no idea how to cure clumsiness.
