I once taught an entire class wearing Hogwarts robes from the lost and found box because it was freezing in my library…

feistypaants:

oh my gosh BLESS YOU those kids probably felt like they were in HP for just a moment there !!!

I also used to wear high heels to work in an attempt to look like A Grown Up…

…then we would start after school rehearsals and I would be barefoot with my hair held up in a pencil.

(I miss teaching my class and I miss my kids and I miss directing but I don’t miss the politics of schools.)

my friend just accidentally called our math teacher “honey” and he replied “yes dear”

okay fun story time

when I was teaching my students learned that I would answer faster if they called for “mommy.”

so conversations would go like this:

student: “Ms. T?”

student: “Ms. T?”

student: “Ms. T?”

student: “Mommy?”

me: “yes, baby, what do you need?”

it was great.

Sometimes I cry because I miss teaching and I miss directing and I miss my students so much. They were my kids and I love them and I wish I could have stayed. I wish I could have directed more shows with them. I wish there could have been more Disney dances and inside jokes and crazy rehearsals that ended with me lying on the floor laughing like the mature adult I am.

I miss my babies.

please tell me you were at a private school because that is insane.

I was. No school board to answer to, so they did whatever they wanted. And the headmaster was an ass, so he did a lot of terrible things.
