The simple joys of teaching teenagers (part 2)


Because my brother is worried I am going to get fired from my job due to my last post I decided to redeem my negativity with a new positive post.

Today was a great day in teaching (actually, it really was). Sophomores, despite their flaws are hilarious. I was actually almost crying (from tears of laughter) today in class because of a funny comment a student said. So today I am happy to say I enjoy my job, both with the good and the bad. Why am I a teacher? Because students can be very endearing and fun to teach.

Yea! I am glad you have a blog. I bet you are a great teacher. But man I sure would hate to teach Highschoolers, don't you remember we were little shits. Going to kamas this weekend to see Colby and Mandy, hopefully you are there.

This post doesn't sound like you at all :) There is no way you could be fired from your job from a posting on your blog.

When Laura can tell you why your original post could not be considered a tort, only then should you take her legal advice.

Laura said...

Since I'm no legal expert, I can't give legal advice - I just doubt anyone from your school is going to be reading your blog. That's all.

This is my summarization of high school students, two words: TEEN ANGST.
