But there's one teacher in particular I wanted to tell you guys about.
She was introducing herself to the class and said she had one biological child. Then she said she had two 'bonus' children. She told the class to discuss what the term bonus child meant and then asked us, as a group, to discuss what it meant.
I guessed she meant bonus to child to mean stepchild (almost everyone else thought she was referring to her pets).
Cue a five minute tangent about how horrible it is to refer to steps as such. She told us as educators we need to refer to steps as 'bonus mothers,' 'bonus fathers,' and 'bonus children.'
I wanted to tell her she should join SMC.
