Isang super busy na araw sa school, ang mga bagets feeling foundation day lang. Super hyper sa paglalaro. At syempre, may isang namumukod tanging leader sa group–none other than the second youngest child in the class, Janel. Feeling ni Janel, hindi lang Foundation Day, Teacher’s Day pa na tipong kailangan ng student mentors. Lahat ng ways ng teachers, gayang-gaya nya:
Teacher A. : Okay kids, pack away na!
Janel: Everyone, pack away na!
Teacher L.: Janel, kasama ka sa magppack-away ha hindi lang classmates mo ha.
While playing ball catching, natamaan ni Yohann ang ball na hawak ni Janel:
Janel: Ay Yohann, that’s bad ha. Come here.
(At dinala ni Janel si Yohann sa “face the wall” corner)
Teacher A: Janel, no ha. Si teacher lang ang magpapa-face the wall ha. Come here Yohann.
Janel: (habang hawak-hawak si Yohann papunta kay teacher) Oh di ba Yohann si teacher lang apapa-face the wall, akikinig ka lang sa kin ha.
Asus! Pambihira talaga ang leadership ni Janel!
Still inside Escuela Legarda:

The bully teacher in me strikes again:
Me: Gianna, bakit hindi ka pumasok kahapon?
(although suspended naman talaga ang class the day before, but I was just trying to jest her)
Gianna: Kasi wala yung dila ko.
Me: Ha? San nman nagpunta yung dila mo?
Gianna: Sa Mercury.
Me: Anong ginawa nya sa Mercury?
Gianna: Bumili siya ng battery kasi wala na siyang battery., Look oh! (and showed me her tongue)
This little girl never fails to amaze me whenever she talks:-)

I made a survey among my boys in school:
Me: Joaqui, is my nail polish pretty?
Me: Do you like it?
Joaqui: No! (and ran away)
Joaqui the Funny boy:-)
Me: Dylan, is my nail polish pretty?
Me: Do you like it?
Me: but why?
Dylan: Because I’m a boy and boys don’t have nail polish.
VERY GOOD! Their parents could now relax:-) These boys are indeed ‘barakos.’ 🙂
I’ll let you in on what’s happening on a usual day inside Escuela Legarda:

While working with Dylan:
Me: Dylan, you write properly, please.
Dylan: Okay! Okay!
*but he was still too lazy to write properly
Me: Dylan, please!
*I covered my face with my hands so Dylan thought I was crying*
Dylan: Oh no! Sorry Teacher Apple. Okay I will write now. (in a Harry potter tone)
Dylan the sweetest boy:-)

Dylan brought his Thomas Train coloring book in school. Since all kids love anything new, they were like bees buzzing around Dylan the flower. After a while, they already stopped since the teachers asked them to. But one kid was so persistent and just pretended to leave Dylan behind, but actually, he was just a few baby steps away from Dylan:
Me: Dylan, you want to color your Thomas?
Dylan: Oh yes sure Teacher Apple
Seth: (his most awaited time) Okay! I’ll help him!
Ay sandali? Tinawag kita Seth? 🙂

I was absent for three days in school due to fever. When i came back, it was as if the kids didn’t see me for a year that they were so happy to see me again:
Jazz: Di ba Teacher Apple kaya ka nag-sick kasi si Nigel cry ng cry sa school?
Jazz to Nigel: Wag ka na kasi mag-cry para hindi na mag-sick si Teacher Apple
Jazz the Boy Wonder:-)

One Valentine’s Day morning in school. Cole came in with three long-stemmed red roses for us, his teachers:-) After a while, Allen came in and went near the flowers to check it.
Cole: Allen, wag mong galawin yang flowers ha. Sa mga teachers ko yan ha.
Aww:-) How sweet this cute boy:-)
