It's been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flatter and if that's really true than boy am I ever flattered. :) This has been Homecoming week at school and the spirit day yesterday was "Teacher Day". I had heard that a few girls were coming as me and so I secretly borrowed a uniform and decided to come as them. I've always heard "oh, you look so young - you could pass as a student", but the uniform put it over the top. Kids were mistaking me for a student, I sat in a pre-cal class for SEVERAL minutes before the teacher (my co-worker!) realized and was told that if I really was a student I'd get asked to Homecoming (ewww).
Apparently all you really need to be Mrs. McAnally is a Starbucks cup, dress and jacket/cardigan of any variety.
There were several versions of Mrs. McAnally including "dress and boots Mrs. McAnally", "dress and wedges Mrs. McAnally", "Maxi Dress Mrs. McAnally" and "cute shirt with a scarf Mrs. McAnally" :)

What cracked me up the most were my 7th graders - they've only known me for 5 weeks and already have me down to a tee!
I was SHOCKED by how many Mrs. Mcanally's were running around campus yesterday - these pictures are only a few. I'd get yelled at across the courtyard... "Hey! I'm YOU today!" :)

It was such a fun day - so fun to see all the little Mrs. McAnally's and so fun to get to sport my uniform and pass as a high schooler (some said junior high, but I'm going to give myself a little more credit than that and say high school). The best part of the day though, was the reminder that I'm obviously making an impression (and a lasting one, at that!) on my students. I'm just hoping that they can remember the Pythagorean Theorem and Quadratic Equation as well as they can remember what I wore last week. :)


  1. These pics. made my day! I probably would have sported a Route 44 instead though! :)

  2. That is the cutest thing I've ever seen!! Congrats for being such an unspoken blessing to all of these students. Thats an amazing achomplishment, girl!

  3. The funniest part is that you look their age!! You're just like your mama, you look years younger than you actually are. Those pictures are so cute!
