old teachers never die….they just lose their class……

Stressed-teacher-460x276

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:

“Let me see if I’ve got this right.  You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.

You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.  You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook and apply for a job.

You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass their final exams.

You also want me to provide them with an equal education, regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter and reportcard.

You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books a big smile and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

You want me to do all this, and then you tell me……

I CAN’T PRAY?

computer overload…

Are you spending TOO much time at the computer?  Let’s see if you need a teensy break…..

  • Your opening line is, “So what’s your home page address?”
  • Your best friend is someone you’ve never met.
  • You see a beautiful sunset, and you half expect to see “Enhanced for Netscape 1.1” on one of the clouds.
  • You are overcome with disbelief, anger and finally depressed when you encounter a Web page with no links.
  • You are driving on a dark and rainy night when you hydroplane on puddle, sending your car careening toward the flimsy guard rail that separates you from the precipice of a rocky cliff and certain death. You look for the “Back” button.
  • You visit “The Really Big Button that Doesn’t Do Anything” again and again and again.
  • Your dog has his own Web page and so does your hamster.
  • When you read a magazine, you have an irresistible urge to click on the underlined passages.

test time…

In the interest of school starting up….here’s a little test.

There are only nine questions.  This is a quiz for people who know everything!  I found out in a hurry that I didn’t.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several  growing seasons.  All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle.  The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn’t been cut in any way.  How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ‘ dw’ and they are all common words.  Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar.  Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter ‘S.’

6. Three English words beginning with dw: Dwarf, dwell and dwindle…

7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar: Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe,question mark, exclamation point, quotation mark, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellip ses.
