You have got to be kidding me! A Grade 10 teacher is under investigation for using the word vagina in an anatomy lesson.

Wonder what they would have done to me after this exchange with a Grade 4 student in my second year of teaching:

Kid: "Those two balls down by my wiener, are those my kidneys?"

Me: Um, no.

Kid: What are they then?

Me: (glancing over at my Ed Assistant, who has her head down on the table, laughing). Um, they are called your testicles."

Kid: "Oh. What do they do?"

Me: (looking around the classroom, bunch of grade 3s there as well....) Um, I think it would be best if you went home and talked to Mom about it.

That night I called Mom to let her know, in case he did ask so she wasn't caught off guard. She laughed and laughed.
