College is a never-ending source of mystery for many of my students. Even the students who have parents who are very well educated have some misconceptions about college. Things like the idea of a roommate and not being in class all day long are fascinating to my students. Here is one of the best things about college I have ever been asked, though it came from the daughter of a family friend, another beautiful first grader in my life.
"Michelle, Where do you go to the bathroom at college?"
My response: "Do you have a bathroom at your school? I have one at mine too."
What a great reminder about the simple, but very important things in life.
