A small group of first-year girls at Nita JHS gave me this drawing just now. They made one for most of the teachers, if not all of them.

The poor dears think I'm from Canada, it would seem. I didn't have the heart to correct them.

My likeness is saying, "Hello Ms. Emily," with Emily in Japanese.

I'm just so tickled! They even drew in my braid.

Your students think you are Canadian because you are nice.

All Canadians are nice.
You are nice.
Ergo, you are Canadian!

Better teach them some logic :)

Haha, yeah, that one would make my logic professor cringe.

Well, if they ever realize their mistake, I'll reassure them that I'm from Upstate New York, which I'm told is Almost Canada, and that some of my family is Canadian. Close enough.
