So funny! I can relate to almost every one.
What do do when there is a rattlesnake in the hallway
(our "halls" are all outside)
Waiting 20 minutes for a kid to have a BM....
Zelda, How about the kid who takes 20 minutes at the same time every day to have a BM
Loved that!!! :lol:
Like clockwork, isn't it? :lol:

Thanks for the laugh this morning
How to figure out to remember 150 students' names, plus all the faculty first and last names, and staff member names-- on top of learning the faculty's names at the other campus. >_<

How about a hummingbird? The K teacher and I spent about 15 minutes trying to get one out years ago. Rattlesnake in my class many years ago (the playground) big one, too. Right before the K class came out.
Checking the steps leading to the playground for black widow spiders everyday.
We had a major infestation over the summer, it seems. Even after the exterminators saturated the area, we still kept finding spiders almost every day. Exterminators came again and, hopefully, sprayed the area again. Haven't seen any spiders in the last week, so maybe they're finally gone.
Wow. It seems likes animals are taking over our schools! :lol:
When they taught us about lesson planning and student engagement, they left out one key piece of advice:
Any lesson that includes students using post-it notes guarantees 100% engagement!
It's amazing what they will do when you put post-its in front of them, and then promise them more if they run out!!
What to do when a student poops in a bathroom stall, doesn't tell anyone, then another student steps in the poop and walks around like nothing happened. Before we realized what it was, they had tracked it all over the room!
I can relate to the BM stories! I spent some of the day walking to the bathrooms to find stragglers. Problem is...I have to leave my class alone while I do it.
Nope, they don't teach you ANY of that in college!
Thanks for the posting the video, cute :lol:
however, I seem to be learning ALOT about differentiated instruction in my program!

Poop in the stall. We had a five year old once that weighed about 120lbs and he was not PT. THe janitor was out and I was elected to clean a mini bathroom. It was all over the floor, walls and toilet.
Thank God for the mops and bleach
You don't learn that kids sometimes die.
The worst moments of my teaching careers have been when I first heard of a big crisis, and knew that, somehow, either my school or my husband's school were likely to have been involved.
The Herricks Train crash, the LIRR shooting, TWA flight 800-- I remember hearing of each of these and wondering right away which of our kids were effected. Just now, reading Chrissteena's post about a LI teen dying, I said a quick prayer that she wasn't one of ours. She wasn't, but it's a local school; some of our kids are bound to have known her.
Not really Letterman- appropriate, but one of those things no one warned me about.
How to keep 40 stink bugs out of the room, or at least out of my lunch and off my desk.
That no one cares that you know what Maslow's Hierarchy, Bloom's Taxonomy, or Gardner's Multiple Intelligences are anymore.
