The Nerd Award.
Is it just me or is that annoying?
Hard work and being smart makes you a nerd? That's what we are teaching our students? Really?
I love reading, learning and bettering myself. So am I a nerd?
I don't feel like a nerd. Although I'm not really sure what a nerd is suppose to feel like.
Why do we do that? Why do we label people with such generalities? Athletic people are are cool but intelligent people are nerds.
I think it's ridiculous that adults, not just adults but teachers who shape our students little minds, are contributing to such labels.
Maybe I'm overreacting, analysising it too much. Maybe I just need to get over myself and see the fun in the award.
But I just can't.
