2 Comments// Posted in humour, teaching by on 05.23.10.

  • A teacher is a multi-tasking superhero/heroine who gets the least pay.
  • Disaster will occur when visitors are in the room.
  •  The most ill-behaved student in all of a teacher’s classes is always one of the bright ones he can’t flunk.
  • A subject interesting to the teacher will bore students.
  • You will be given the most tasks when you least expected it.
  • The time a teacher takes in explaining is inversely proportional to the information retained by students.
  • A meeting’s length will be directly proportional to the boredom the speaker produces.
  • Students who are doing better are credited with working harder. If children start to do poorly, the teacher will be blamed.
  • The problem child will be a PTA/PIBG member’s daughter/son.
  • When the teacher is late, he will meet the principal on the way to the class.
  • New students come from schools that do not teach anything.
  • Good students move away.
  • You will receive a letter for a one week course when you have meticulously planned a family trip to (fill in the blank with exotic location).
  • Teachers who boast doing the most work in school usually work the least.
  • Students forgot to bring their books on the day you are being observed by the school inspectorate.
  • Clocks will run more quickly during free time.
  • On a test day, at least 15% of the class will be absent.
