Remember X? The little girl who was supposed to be the spawn of Satan?
I subbed for her class again yesterday. She walked behind me and noticed my laptop background, and said "You like Glee?"
I turned and said "Oh I love Glee! Do you?"
She lit up and said "Yeah!"
"Who's your favorite character?"
"I like the blond one." [Quinn]
We started talking about how much we liked the songs and I told her how I got to see them live at the Grove during a pre-screening of an episode, and she was so excited. We had a connection! A bond! This child isn't so bad after all...I mean, she's a Gleek. She's got to have some good inside!
She behaved extremely well again yesterday, and I even gave her the task of passing out papers, to which the other kids exclaimed "She can't! She makes bad choices!" I looked at her and said "You'll make good choices, right?" and she promised, though I watched her like a hawk to make sure she didn't maul a classmate or set something on fire. And she did well.
X exceeded my expectations.
Glee contains the power to make even demon children like their teachers.
