Staff Meeting

Lead Teacher: Let’s look at Guernica.

Reading Lead: Um, but that’s a breast. With nipples. I wouldn’t feel comfortable showing that to the sixth graders.

Lead Teacher: It’s art.

Reading Lead: And…is she breast feeding?

ESL Teacher: No, um, no, that’s her dead baby.

Me: Boys and girls, today we’re going to learn about Picasso, the Spanish Civil War, Nazis, and dead babies.
