"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

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: 946 ✭✭✭✭✭
    And yes, sometimes parents behave like in the picture. Lol

    Student: "Whatever Mon says"
