You Can't Make This Stuff Up

I told them to take out their regents books.

Tabatha took out hair rollers and started curling her hair.

I'm ineffective.  I just can't get them engaged.

Good thing I am leaving.

This must be the algebra class.

Why would high school students bring hair rollers to school? I do not think any highly effective, effective, developing or ineffective teacher would have ever predicted hair rollers coming out of a back pack.

Oh my hell! STOP thinking like that! It has NOTHING to do with you, and EVERYTHING to do with the shitty parenting this generation is receiving! I don't want to start a rant here, but man, I could go on for HOURS!

Thanks for your support,but this time I was being sarcastic.

It's time for Tabitha to enroll in beauty culture....obviously academics isn't her forte. It's my fault, too, that my student C. called another student, J., a disgusting unmentionable name right in front of me after intentionally trying to use a pen on J's neck. Perhaps C. actually wants to become a tattoo artist. C.'s father is trying his best with him, enrolling him in a college prep program at a local private college in spite of C.'s learning issues. I too may be ineffective as evidenced by C.'s inability to focus on regents review. Time to exit stage left, or perhaps right.

Wow! Girls still "set" their hair?
Even I stopped doing that 30 years ago!
