You know you teach in Herriman, Utah when...

Me: Which religious sect left England to escape religious persecution and later formed the Plymouth colony?

Several Students: The Mormons!

Me: No, that religion was not invented yet...try again.

Girl: Um...LDS??

Me: No...there are other religions guys!!

Students: (blank stares)

Finally, one musters the courage to speak:

Boy: Buddhists?

Me: No

Girl: Christians??

Several Students: Yeah! Christians!!

Me: No, um...that's too broad. Try again.

One boy eventually said "Puritans," but it took us about five minutes to get there.


  1. You need to post what your class said! I think "the polygamists" tops "the Christians" as an answer to that question any day!
