The box is overrated

Saturday, November 15, 2008

I got these in an email and they made me laugh hysterically. That is either due to the fact that I am a teacher, or the fact that I have the lamest sense of humor ever. Or some sort of compromise therein. But look, I blogged on Saturday! Not about my health!

Those were funny. I can imagine as a teacher you see a lot of strange stuff. Then again, anyone who works with the public sees a lot of strange stuff.

When I was teaching I loved it when kids showed creativity like this!

I get answers like that on quizzes in my English classes all the time and it never fails to make me laugh! My most recent favorite was from a quiz on the novel "The Alchemist," where the kids had to fill in the correct answer from a quote in the book: "When you have __________, all things are possible." The answer was "love," but one boy wrote, "Chuck Norris."

Then this past week, I saw a boy laughing like crazy during a vocabulary test and walked over to see what was so funny about this week's words. The definition of one word read "To see clearly," but he'd amended it to say "I can see clearly now, the rain is gone" and was overcome with amusement at himself.

This is when I LOVE teaching!
