teacher tidbits*

September 30, 2010

Today started crazy as usual. My class this year has energy to say the least. Well we changed classes, I started teaching Science again and suddenly the unthinkable happened. Fire drill.....I have yet to receive my drill map. My students lined up like we had rehearsed for this or something, and I stood in the hall asking teachers were I was supposed to go. We went outside, came back in...end of story.

Or so I thought.

Well my homeroom had a bit of a incident. Apparently (leading up to the fire alarm) my students had not thought to bring pencils to their next class, that teacher applies the policy I used last year and requires a shoe trade for a pencil. I just haven't gotten aggravated enough yet to do it this year. Well apparently my half shoeless class heard the alarm and instead of finding a shoe decided to fall out in the floor yelling and rolling around like nuts. 

Was I surprised? No I was laughing so hard when I heard this the principal came out to tell the kids to be quiet...truth be told it was me. (uh oh) The teacher who currently had them was cracking me up, she threatened the mess out of me if I didn't warn her ahead of time that they were having "one of those days" again. In her words "At least stick your head out in the hall to yell they are psycho", she kills me. 

Needless to say I can only imagine a whole class rolling around with no shoes during a fire drill.

Who else is excited tomorrow is Friday?
