Sure, Kid, But Have You Seen How Well I Waterboard?



Student: “Miss McMcerson, you’re the best teacher.”

Me: “It’s because I know how to stream Netflix to a Smartboard, isn’t it?”

Student: “Yeah, but also because you don’t strangle us like my last teacher.”

Me: “Ummm.”

Student: “He was better at basketball than you, though.”

Me: “Well, I can’t be the best at everything.”

Student: “True.”

  1. I had a similar, although opposite, conversation with a student….. He said ” You’re the WORST sewing teacher I’ve ever had!” I looked at him, shook my head and said “You’re in year 7 – I’m the ONLY sewing teacher you’ve ever had!” Gotta love the behaviour management class 😉

  2. I feel awful laughing at the strangling teacher thing but it’s not stopping me. I don’t know if I’ll ever stop laughing. It’s awesome and I wish more than anything I knew more about that story and that teacher and anything that had to do with that incident. I’m a bad person and I know it doesn’t quash the fact just because I am aware of it.

  3. The only reason I survive my job is that I can find things simultaneously hilarious and horrifying.

    If you’re a bad person, at least we’re in it together.
