"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

As a primary school teacher I often hear jokes about my job.

So I'd like to share things about that with you.

[i]TEACHER : Marko, what is the chemical formula for water ?
MARKO : h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o
TEACHER : What are you talking about ?
MARKO : Yesterday you said it was H to O.

    Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire.
    Much to their relief she smiled and said: "Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper."
    Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. Then she said:
    "First Question: Which tire was flat?"

    You're welcome, @christelle :) .
    Do you also have problem with the parents of your pupils like in the picture?
    You're a teacher in the First School, right?

    @april I'm a primary school teacher, yes.

    I think things have changed. Nowadays pupils and children are considered like kings and they have all rights, according to their parents.
  • christellechristelle Posts: 984 ✭✭✭✭✭
    And yes, sometimes parents behave like in the picture. Lol

    A new student came to the class. After telling the rest of the children his name, the teacher ask "What does your father do?"
    Student: "Whatever Mon says"
