So I'm a teacher in a Maryland county school system and I've been teaching at my school for 5 years. I love my school! It's a great place and the kids are awesome as is the staff. However every once in a while
I got to school this morning and I stopped by my mailbox to check and see what odd random stuff my school has for me. My eye is instantly caught be a gold paper announcing a new club for after school. Yeah, it's a bit late in the year, but what the hey. It'll probably kickoff again next year.
So I look at the thing- it's a sort of club for the brainy kids, very nice. But then my jaw dropped a bit
it's the name:
Scholars Of Distinction: S.O.D.
And the club is called the S.O.D. Squad.
The Sod Squad
Now I'll grant you that is British slang and 98% of my school, facility included, won't realise the gaff
but there is that 2% of students who have lived in the UK or have attended British schools
Yup, they noticed. I have this cute little girl who grew up in London. She lived there until she was in the 1st Grade. She still speaks with a bit of a British accent. I watched her go to her in-class mailbox, take out the sheet, read said sheet
her eyes went wide, and the silliest grin streaked across her face, and she RACED to me with her treasure
giggling all the way.
"Yes honey, I know. The poor sods
It took her a full minute to recover her composure!!!!
