A couple of things from today: I wore a weird dress, and it’s been a weird (but cool) week. This week has been my sexual health week in bio class. During this week, we talk about HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy, and consent. This also means that sexual health week is when I will answer any and all questions students have (submitted anonymously) regardless of how graphic or silly. Some questions are super science-y, some earnest, and some questions require a quick Urban Dictionary search.As to be expected, teenagers are very curious about “all of the sex”. I get questions about everything, and every year I try to be as scientifically open and honest with these kids as I can. It has been an interesting, but awesome start of the week!
Now this dress, is just weird, but I really like it! I have to be careful though, since there are no actual sleeves on this dress, just holes for your arms to stick out of. So the higher I raise my arms, the higher the hemline climbs. I kept my arms practically glued to my sides all day. I picked this dress up from COS while I was in Melbourne this past summer. We have COS here in the states, but not anywhere near Denver. COS is weird – I think of it as the Swedish minimalist-but-architecturally-interesting-older-sister of H&M. Naturally, I looove this stuff. Lately, I find myself weaning off of the young-Brooklyn-hipster-Madewell aesthetic and moving on to the more mature-but-interesting-natural look that I often see on (also very hipster) places like Kinfolk. It’s all very shallow, I know. But this is my shallow little hobby, and I’m ok with that.

And what are some interesting and weird questions you’ve had to answer? Looking forward to that post too!
Lolz, I don’t think I’ll be posting their questions, it would generate too much unwanted traffic with such spicy language!
How far do you let the questions go and how honestly do you answer? I’ve always struggled with wanting to be honest with students but being afraid that it will appear like I’m being inappropriate.
I have that worry also, but I also think that student questioning should be as uncensored as possible regardless of the topic. I think a more important part is setting up a culture in the classroom where students are asking questions, but still respecting each other (and me) in how they ask them. I’ve never gotten any questions that I felt were being asked gratuitously, so I’ve never filtered their voices in the processes.
