Quotes: In the Life of a Ninth Grade Teacher

Student 1: Who is Gandhi?
Student 2: YOU DON"T KNOW WHO GANDHI IS?! He's like an Indian MLK.

Student 1: I'm 1/2 white.
Student 2: No you aren't.
Student 1: Yes, I am. I'm 1/2 white, 1/2 Mexican, and 1/2 Asian
(I'm not really sure how that works)
Student 2: Oh. Well, what is your last name?
Student 1: Marquette
Student 2: Isn't that like a basketball team?
--end of conversation--

Remarkably, these were all from 2 students in one period. I wish I could remember more gems of the day.
