It's Thursday! Yea! It's almost the weekend!
But first, we are going to play along with Kat at http://mamakatslosinit.blogspot.com/
It's time for Writer's Workshop.
Go look at the prompts.
I chose: # 5 -Share some ADVICE with someone who you think needs it.
We’re going to Back to School Night at the High School tonight.
Our high school is the best! Seriously! It ROCKS.
But while the teachers have a little advice for us about how we can help our students succeed this year, I have a little advice for some of them as well……….
Dear Security Guard –
You are white.
You are 30 something.
You are not black.
You are not 17.
Quit trying to kiss up to the very thugs you are supposed to be busting.
Did you really just go up to one of the football players and say, “Come on Jameel and let’s find your daddy and see if he’ll give me some money for being his baby’s mama?”
Dear AP Lit Teacher –
I like you.
You’re a really good teacher.
Quite hassling me to put my kid in your class.
Boy #2 passed AP Lang and the college he is going to won’t give him anymore English credit. So he really doesn’t need the brain damage of ANOTHER AP class.
I know! I know!
You went to the National AP Conference this summer (sorry your summer sucked.)
And they have PROOF that seniors who don’t take a billion AP classes don’t do as well in college.
That explains why Boy#1 only got a 3.9 his freshman year.
Dear AP Lang Teacher –
I don’t like you.
Yeah my boys both did well on the AP test.
I still don’t like you.
Flirting with high schoolers and asking teenage girls about what they do with their boyfriends has NOTHING to do with English.
Stick to the subject.
Dear Assistant Principal –
Fire the BAD teacher already.
How many letters do you need in THAT file?
The fact that 45 parents called you and removed their kids from her class BEFORE school started doesn’t say enough?
Dear Spanish Teacher –
I need you to teach my child SPANISH!
That is why he is in your class.
DO NOT tell my kid to watch Al Gore’s movie or “Who Killed the Electric Car” for extra credit (unless you want them to watch it in Spanish).
If you would like to discuss politics everyday,
go teach Political Science.
Your a Spanish teacher.
Well, hopefully everyone will get my notes and we'll have a super year!
