A Good Start

On my second day as an elementary school teacher, I received this note from a parent, in lieu of her son’s homework:

“Avromi has worked for about 30 min very diligently and with enthusiasm!  We are all very happy about it.  Unfortunately he couldn’t find a pencil.”

How true!

From a first grader, arriving home spitting mad after overhearing teachers discussing their paychecks:

“The teachers get PAID! But it’s us kids doing all the WORK and all we get are LOUSY STICKERS!” “

Truckless in Tennessee

“I have lost my truck.”

 

Many thanks to Dr. Norman Weatherby, a Professor at Middle Tennessee State University, for reporting this attendance excuse, fresh from last week.
