<students talking over me>
Me: Please stop talking.
<students continue to talk over me>
Me: You’re being disrespectful!
<students keep talking over me>
<students start to end their conversation>
Me (oozing with sarcasm): Thank you for talking over me. I feel so respected right now.
Student A (very confused, but sincere): You’re welcome.
<a few start to laugh, but stop at my glare>
Student B (nicely, to Student A): She was being sarcastic.
Finding these kinds of affirmations reminds me of why I became a teacher in the first place!
Man, I miss this kid. He’s in college now and clearly having a great time lol
This kid must not think I’ll actually read her paper. Over half of of the 5 page essay is that fake Latin gibberish from one of Word’s templates.
Student: I didn’t die today!
Me: No, we had a small scare with the heart attack after he found out he’d have to read two whole paragraphs, but then he decided to pull through.
Student’s mom: He’s been making a lot of difficult decisions lately.
Student (throws pencil across the table, exclaiming): WITCHCRAFT!!
Me (laughing): Or maybe you just have good handwriting?
Who’s the first one to drop the f-bomb at PD today?
Student: I’m grown, I don’t need you to keep my phone for me. I can get all this work done while listening to music.
Also Student (still sitting at his desk 10 minutes after class is over because he didn’t notice everyone had left after trying to talk to him, but he had his headphones in): Can I get an extra day to complete this?
