the facepalm is real!
Well, she’s half right
Pop culture really can do this ! XD
I like how science is a question.
Magical Ninja = cool career path.
I want to live in the world where Modest’s idea of school is accurate. Modest you’re too cute! Stahp!
There is a school where all the boys are ghosts?
Might be a reference to the Dead Boy Detectives, which is a spinoff from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series.
Meduse can be that one girl actually.
She is not pretty (by human standarts), she is pretty in her own way, she is magic.
I recognize the facepalm. You deal with kids who believe that they are going to replace whoever is the big kid star on TV without studying or learning anything, and whose parents support that belief ~ ~ ~ ~ GAH!!!!!!!!!
I just learned my schools completely failed me. I am so sad.
Well, they did start the “Be an X-men, Ninja, or Magic Girl” after you graduated. So you do have to forgive them. That’s why they were having all those fundraisers, for the students AFTER you. 🙂
The vice principal is NOT amused. :p
“Darnit, we’re going to have to reeducate this one from the ground up…”
I personally think this teacher is impatient and insensitive. Kids ramble like this all the time and are heavily inspired by pop culture. A good teacher would be patient and correct the student without being angry. As a teacher candidate I know that kids at that age are still forming their understanding of the world around them, and are quite easily led astray.
Influenced by pop culture, yes.
Relying solely on pop culture on what is a big part of most kids’ daily reality in the west? Not so much, I expect.
And the vice principal hasn’t said a single angry word to Modest yet. She’s given her a stern glare and now she’s facepalming, but that’s about it. ^^
In her defence Modest did try to Falcon Punch her. 🙂
I don’t think that face palm is for modest. I bet she is going to have a very stern conversation with her Dad.
Wear the scarf, Modest, become a Kamen Rider! 🙂
Definitively an X-Men. Or better. A Ninja-Magical Girl-X Men
I love a line from Kitty Pride (back as a teacher): Have they done the Choosing Hat yet? I just love that part.
Hopefully, Modest is not looking for one of those either.
All the snakes are thinking: “Is that really how it works…?”
Parenting at its finest. I love it~!
What about wizardry and witchcraft? I’m pretty sure those are career options!
I love Modest so much!
Well, considering the ‘race’ of Modest, she has very good chances becoming one of the X-men.
This page made me laugh out loud, from the second panel all the way through the last!
