Can you think of any? Here are mine:

The student you most need break from will have the best attendance.

You will run out of staples when you are standing on a chair in the hallway.

A student will have a meltdown when visitors are present in the classroom.

Disaster will occur when visitors are in the room.

A subject interesting to the teacher will bore students.

New students come from schools that do not teach anything.

Good students move away.

If you have planned an important pairwork activity, an odd number of students will show up.

PTO Open House will be held on the night of part two of the best three-part TV show of the year.

The only time you are a few minutes late all year is the time your principal will be waiting in your room for you. . .looking at the clock.

If you slip and fall in class, all your students will be present.

If you slip and fall in the street, at least one of your students will be present.

When you are being observed, all good students stay at home.

Photocopiers always break when you have an important test.

If you give your instructions so clearly that nobody can misunderstand, somebody will.

Your projector bulb will shoot the day you need it most.

The day you leave your _____ at home will be the day your principal comes in to see it.

The minute you submit a student's name for student of the month, that child will have the worst behavior they've had all school year.

The parents who complain you never send any information home will be the ones who notice the spelling error on your weekly newsletter.

The day you decide to go grab something from the store and don't bother to put on any makeup and are wearing your sweats, is the day you run into a student and their parents.

you never, EVER use you cell phone in the classroom.

The day there is a serious emergency, the phone will ring and you will answer, just as the principal walks in the door.
