A nice thing to say- if you speak Hogwarts

Yesterday third grader Dominic said "hey Anna, you know what?"
"If you were in Harry Potter, I know what teacher you'd be. You would be McGonagall. Hey Tom! Tom! I know who you would be if you were in Harry Potter! If you were in Harry Potter, you would be Dumbledor" Tom is a lead teacher in the class, and he is wise and kind like Dumbledor (and maybe magic!)
"Wow! thanks", we both said. I told him that my own children have decided I would be a Hufflepuff, because I'm a hard worker and pretty nice.
Today when I was back in the third grade studio, Dominic told me he was thinking about it, and he didn't think I was a Hufflepuff, I am more like McGonagall and so I would be a Gryffindor (they are brave, clever and true).
Isn't that one of the nicest things a third grade boy and avid Potter reader could say to a teacher? I think so.


  1. I sometimes forget that I'm a character in the story of the children's lives. How amazing to learn the part you're playing in his -- and what a great part!

  2. That is a nice thing to say! We love this kind of talk in our house -- most of us have even taken an online (myers-briggs-based) Harry Potter personality test. It's amusingly accurate!

  3. Clearly you rock, and Tom too. You should put this on your resume!
