Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

You Might Be a Teacher if...

You might be a teacher if you laugh uncontrollably when people refer to the staff room as the "lounge".

You might be a teacher if you encourage an obnoxious parent to check into charter schools or home schooling and are willing to donate the U- HAUL boxes should they decide to move out of district.

You might be a teacher if you think caffeine should be available in intravenous form.

You might be a teacher if you can't imagine how the ACLU could think that covering your students' chairs with Velcro and then requiring uniforms made out of the corresponding Velcro could ever be misunderstood by the public.

You might be a teacher if meeting a child's parent instantly answers this question, "Why is this kid like this?"

You might be a teacher if you would choose a mammogram over a parent conference.

You might be a teacher if you think someone should invent antibacterial pencils and crayons... and desks and chairs for that matter!

You might be a teacher if the words "I have a college debt for this?" has ever come out of your mouth.

You might be a teacher if you know how many days, minutes, and seconds are left in the school year! (Jeff Foxworthy)

  4. I WAS A TEACHER AND EVERYONE OF THOSE ARE CORRECT EXCEPT THE ONE FOR ACLU. The lounge one was really funny to me and the one especially great was the one that said....." You might be a teacher if you know how many days, minutes, and seconds are left in the school year! (Jeff Foxworthy) ". I'll add one more of my own and that is ....." I was a teacher after the first day of school when teachers were counting the days for Chrsitmas ".
    Have a great Sunday Sandee. See ya.

  13. My wife is a teacher and she fully endorses the views furnished in the post. I enjoyed every bit,especially the observations on meeting parents which answers the question, "Why the child is like this?" and suggestion of antibacterial material for eraser, pencil, etc.
    Have a great Sunday!

    1. I wouldn't survive either. I'm glad that wasn't my chosen profession. :)
