A Shrewdness of Apes

An Okie teacher banished to the Midwest. "Education is not the filling a bucket but the lighting of a fire."-- William Butler Yeats

Never a good sign....

... when every teacher you encounter in the hallway is slumped against the lockers with their heads drooping on their necks like a jack-in-the-box.

... when a kid who just doesn't understand why she doesn't have an A in your class says to you, after you've been discussing the presidency of Nixon for almost a week, says, "Wait-- you mean Nixon was a Republican?????"

.... when an AP approaches you and starts making jokes and then says, "Listen, I have a great proposition for you...."

Run. Run and hide.

As long as that proposition doesn't continue with: "So I hear you have your admin certification..."

Ha! You could always do to your AP what I did to mine .... (and, yes, I've been informed revenge is in the offing... hope it is entertaining).

We had our SB last week. I was so exhausted going in that my goal was a two-hour nap every day. I'm hoping I have enough juice now to make to the end.

Yeah, especially when the AP gives you that line. Immediately feign sickness and run for your life.
