Teacher Returns From Maternity Leave To Adorable “Interrogation” From 2nd-Graders.

Mrs B answers questions

Children are naturally curious, and there’s no one better qualified to answer their questions than a teacher!

Nancy Bullard teaches K-5 science in Charlotte North Carolina. Last fall she was pregnant with her first child, so she carefully prepared her students for her upcoming absence. She created a lesson called “Baby Bonanza” and included fun activities like drawing pictures of the baby and guessing what day he’d be born. When she returned to work after her 3-month maternity leave, she knew they’d have plenty of follow up questions!

“I wanted to take a few minutes to catch up with students, introduce them to my son, and let them ask questions,” she explained. “When I wrote my lesson plan for this day I planned to spend about five minutes answering questions, but ended up spending nearly twenty minutes doing so.”

Nancy shared an adorable video of her second graders asking questions about her baby’s birth. The kids asked about where he sleeps, if it’s difficult to have a baby, and what he eats. Mrs. B. even had to answer that tricky question, “Where do babies come from?” but the science teacher handled it with total grace and not a shred of embarrassment.
