I’ve been doing so much “serious” blogging lately that it’s starting to get a little stuffy around here!  It’s time for some teacher humor!

You know when you’re on a roll, checking things off your teacher to-do list like a boss, and then suddenly everything comes to a screeching halt because you can’t find….the GOOD stapler!?!  There’s the other one, but you have to bruise your hand to make it work and even then it spits out mangled staples 75% of the time.

#teacherproblems - the ever elusive "good" stapler


I have the most trouble with this during writing.  I’m roving the class, checking in with students as I go.  Someone brings up their work to show me.  I finish reading, look up, and suddenly it’s like I’m Justin Bieber because I’m completely surrounded by a mob.  It’s funnier when they try to be polite with their mobbing by forming a line.  I’m coming around you guys, sheesh!

#teacherproblems - just like a herd of puppies


You know how you can’t shave with the same razor forever?  The blade gets dull.  Do you know whats inside of a pencil sharpener?….blades.  Yet for some reason schools think these things are going to last forever. When yours breaks down you have a choice: buy a new one (and I’m talking a decent $80+ version) or start hating your life because so many things in the classroom hinge upon the availability of sharp pencils.  It’s sort of like if you got hired to be a cashier at a store and on your first day they told you that you have to bring your own cash register.  Rick knows how we feel.

#teacherproblems - THE most basic supply, come on!

Stay strong, teachers!

      • I NEVER would have thought I would have liked a zombie TV show but I just think its really well done. Well written characters and its more about human survival and resilience than the horror or zombies (in my humble opinion!).
