I Need To Pump Up My Manly Mojo…

It is a somewhat feminine career that I have undertaken – journalism teacher.  I learned this at my first scholastic journalism workshop.  At break time, the men’s room was mainly empty and the line for the little girl’s potty was around the block.  Those of us with a Y chromosome are in the minority as journalism teachers. But, I’m OK with that.

But in the last couple of months, I keep getting mistaken for a gal.  First it was the guys over at Wicked Decent Learning and now it is my good pal over at the scholastic scribe.  So, this must be some kind of weird online vibe I have.  Even my students have banned me from using the word cute.

So, I’m going to work on my manly side.

But thanks to the scribe for the blog bling via Eat Your Veggies.
