Teaching Advice

Do NOT try to reprimand your misbehaving class while there is (unbeknownst to you) a huge chunk of chocolate stuck to your front tooth.

They will not take you seriously. Neither will your co-teacher.

No, really– your co-teacher and 27 nine-year-olds will laugh at you for 10 solid minutes, and you will lose all credibility.

But then, luckily, you’ll remember that you never truly had credibility.

And that will make you feel better.

Until 10 seconds later, when you realize how sad that is.

Just swallow your chocolate, ok?


Maybe this year she’ll ask him when he’s proposing

“Oh, wow! If you two have kids together, they will have the most BEAUTIFUL eyes!” — my cousin, at last year’s Active Minds Casino Night, when I introduced her to a guy I’d been dating for a few months.

So you can see why I’m nervous that someone I’ve been on 4 dates with is coming this year….

(In her defense, that guy DID have gorgeous eyes).

But still.
