I thought that I would give you a moment in my life type of experience. Because unless you teach at an elementary school, you don't know. Even high school teachers...no. "You don't know me!" (That is one of Jeremiah's favorite lines from his customers when he did the phones at work.) And I'm sure that you have exciting work stories to share, too. If you'd like to leave a comment and share, I'm all for it.
Seriously. You know I am all for sharing.
Yesterday I had bus duty after school. Picture two teachers trying to line up about two hundred kids and walk them to the buses.
Yeah. So. Much. Fun.
Except yesterday? No. Freakin'. Buses.
For HALF AN HOUR.
So while the other teacher has an impromptu parent teacher conference, I am dealing with the kids. Here are some of the going-ons that I experienced yesterday. These are one hundred percent REAL conversations. For realsies. They occurred between the dancing and singing. I find it important to keep things light-hearted.
Student - Camp was fun, but...
Emily- But what?
S- Then I threw up s'mores.
E- Yeah, not so fun, huh?
S- Hey teacher!!
E- Hey student!!
S- Teacher, my name isn't student!
E- Well, student, my name isn't teacher.
S- My name is (says name)
E- What are you doing (says name)?
E- Yes you are. Can you please STOP unbuttoning my shirt?
E- Because I'd like to keep my shirt on today.
E- (buttons shirt back up)
S- Is he the new student?
E- Was he here yesterday?
E - Then he's the new student.
S- If I have to walk ALL the way to that bus...
E- You're gonna what?
S- I'm going to be pissed off.
E- (rant. straight up rant. for several minutes. )
Happy Friday, everyone. Enjoy your weekend. If you have a funny work story, please share.
