I had the funniest interaction with a student recently. One of my male students grabbed my arm recently and stated with concern, "Mrs. Saretsky....I'm soooo worried about you! You need to eat! You don't need to worry about those models out there. You just need to be you! Just be you!" I smiled and let him know that I was not a) trying to compete with 18 year old models or b) on a hunger strike until people began telling me I looked like an eighteen year old model. I was still me....inside and out! To reiterate that, I reminded him that he was late for class....something the "old un-modelesk" self would have done also! I had a good laugh and he has moved on to other battles...like graduating and becoming a nurse.
