Stupidest inservice EVER!

I've seen people speculate about their stupidest inservice.

I'm not sure this is a contest I would wish to win, but I'm sad to say I could be a contender...

Mean teacher?

One of my favorite moments came last year:
I put out the homework assignment to my math class. One student quite - really! - upset: "We only have TWO WEEKS of school left! You...

Changing Grades

So, is it harder to go from teaching High School to Middle School or from Middle School to High School? I'm going MS next year; just curious.

Split Personality Parent

Ah, yes! Jekyll and Hyde!

You have the face-to-face and go home, "That went well! I'm glad we worked out the issue!"

But the next morning the P calls you in because a "furious" parent...

Well, obviously Noah DIDN'T have the dinosaurs on the Ark. Or the unicorns. That's why they're not here any more.

This was explained to me in elementary school. Really.

The principal would...

Would this bother you

I am a "Teacher", thank you.

Although, I prefer the term, "Sensei."

Probably Not Nuts

You are probably not nuts.

We often don't get feedback when things are going all right. Sometimes our imagination fills silence with scary sounds and over interprets unhappy looks (maybe P had...

Does it ever get better?

Yes. Really.

Now, God knows that after 20 odd years (Really? I hate doing that math.) there are still days - and kids - that make you feel as if you are back at square one; but it does get...

Late Meetings

One of the things I do not love about teaching: Late Meetings. "The ---'s will be here at 4:30 to discuss their son's math class."

Nobody bats an eye at this. Perhaps they think teachers live...

Boogiemen...make believe

Now the Boogieman IS real - he lived in my closet when I was little. You will simply never convince me he wasn't there.

I know I am reapeating

The second year at a school is (almost) always far better; and the third better than the second.

It is also a good idea to put off a major decision until you have had a good meal and a good night...

Call the Nurse

DO call the nurse.

Two outcomes:

Good Luck!

Ha! I STILL have to help the kids spell their NAMES (LastName+FirstInit is school log-on) when they log-on in class!

Enjoy the movie!

Unfortunately, it's like a fun thing purchased with a credit card: The bill will come due.
