Class Dismissed!

Today I had to remind my 10th grade class at least seven times that one of the attributes that distinguishes you as a 10th grader is the ability to enter and exit a classroom with out:





or otherwise touching your classmates.

This is just one of the many subtle nuances of polite social interation that I am trying to instill upon my students.

Ahhhh Students....

You just don't get it do you.

I don't earn the grades, YOU do. I just fill in the boxes as we go along.

No I will not stop what I am doing to go into intricate detail about my personal life.

Not all books are boring, and genrally speaking, its a could idea to actually read some of the book before you denounce it as boring.

Yes we have class today, and yes we will be doing work. Thank you for asking though, someday perhaps your persistence will pay off and when you walk in the room and ask me if we are doing any work today I will respond with a hearty NO. Just take a seat and sleep for the next couple of hours. Its cool.

Students....thanks for filling my days with all sorts of new and exciting ways to make my job just a little more challenging.

Customers have nothing on students....students have parents.
