Gum...

We only had school until 10:50 today! Our classes were only 18 minutes long. We did a career test yesterday on the computers and today we learned how to fill out job application forms. Fun times. We had a short staff meeting and then the elective teachers left to go visit other schools. I went to visit a lady who teaches the exact same thing as me... I observed 2 classes. Watching her made me feel like I am not doing as bad as I thought. She was pretty rude to some students and everyone was doing there own thing. A little crazy! A girl was chewing gum so she had to write "I will not chew gum in Family and Consumer Science class again" (or something like that) 50 times! Apparently if she does it again she has to sew her pj pants by hand! Holy Schmolies! My only rule is that they can't chew gum like a cow! And if they do they have to spit it out. Maybe I am too nice! I just wish my kids could have been there- maybe they would appreciate me a lot more! It was a good experience. (I am glad I spit out my gum before I walked into her classroom!! he he!)

You must be like, the best teacher! Chewing gum in class. Not like a cow- too funny. I need to come see you- soon!

I know exactly how you feel Shelley...except I don't have to deal with it all day! You would be such a fun teacher! I had to laugh at the chewing gum thing....

I hate gum, and I hate kids chewing gum! Those punishments are a bit extreme tho! My sixth grade teacher would make us write this limmerick a bunch of times if she caught us chewing gum. "The gum chewing kid and the cud chewing cow were both alike but different somehow. What's the difference? Oh I see it now! The intelligent look on the face of the cow!" :)
