The Joys of Teaching High School...
with a full moon and 3 and a half days to go! Today was wild. We are having a three day weekend, and the kids are tired of school, have no intentions of working, aren't going to work and that is that. I have my sources, and today one of the teachers was reviewing, and of course these two boys were talking, so the teacher chewed them out and went on reviewing. Later one of the same boys, we will call him Johnny, was sprawled out in his chair, turned completely around--talking. Teacher called him on it, and the kid says, "I'm looking at you," meaning he really wasn't turned--the teacher was imagining things. So then one of the other boys, says "Johnny is gay," and then one of his buddies says, "Literally, and then Johnny responds that he totally is (gay). The kids reported that these three upstarts went to the office. Then I saw two of the same in the office again a couple of hours later because they had their belts off swatting each other. Some folks think that teachers get paid too much. I would love to trade places with them the last week of school so they could get a taste of this high paid junket. I would especially like a few congressmen and women to sub in some of these schools.
P.S. This may be a risky thing to talk about, but to my knowledge only one person from "my town" knows this blog exists, and she is a teacher, and she ain't talkin'. Three and a half more day!!!!!!!!!
