This is a very timely reference. Hey hey.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I don't know why, but every time I'm supposed to have a meeting with the principal, I start to get so nervous I feel sick. Even though I KNOW it's nothing bad, it still happens. I guess it goes back to my teachers pet days and the principal meetings automatically meant something wrong was up.

I practically lived in my principal's office. Mostly for talking in class too much. Was constantly told how it would mess up my life.
Joke's on him though! Guess what I'm getting paid buckets full of money for, Mr. Strukoff!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Lol a former student of mine was definitely the best at English in his class but he was also the worst behaved.  Mostly I think he was bored/hormonal (same class as a student who couldn't read English at all... so... ) so I tried my best to balance things and keep him engaged but he was still kind of a butt. 

Is it just my classes, or do the boys always seem way moodier than the girls?  (mostly middle school but also some elementary as well)

It's not just you, the boys are moodier in different ways tho. If they're bored or angry I find they just shut down completely. They just decide to give up immediately. It's either "i assume I know this, thus I don't need to pay attention" or "I'm too angry that Jinsu has a cooler spinner than me so I need to let everyone know I'm angry by giving everyone the silent treatment.
The girls on the other hand shut down by weeping until they get attention from their friends. But I haven't had nearly as many girls do that.

Some people have earned being, "Hero of Waygookistan" but I do feel there are those that carry this title when they are more "Gobshite of Waygookistan".

I find it interesting how some of the biggest bullies in my classes are also the biggest try-hard nerds. It's rarely the athletic kids who pick on others at my schools. It's the kids who are middle-class and above average academically who who constantly make fun of the kids who are less academically inclined.

The nerds are the rockstars in this culture.

In a way, if you're going to have bullies, wouldn't you rather they earn that status for their academic, rather than physical, prowess.

Revenge of the Nerds, anyone?

Interestingly enough, my butthead student was not only the best at English, but he was also the best athlete in school (till he graduated). Lol

Yesterday all my classes cancelled. Normally that would go on the happy sh!t megathread i know. But why were they cancelled? Because some students went to a sports day thing somewhere else. The kicker.... 3 of my 4 classes yesterday were grade 4. And no grade 4 students went to the sports thing.

So now I am wondering if there is another reason behind class being cancelled. As normally most teachers send their students to me regardless of if my coteacher is here or not.

Why is it whenever one of my classes is canceled for whatever reason, it gets re-scheduled? I've got classes pushed back to two weeks from now. Aren't the students instead missing those classes they would have during the re-scheduled times? Is my class that important? Is having a little time off for homeroom teachers (because lets face it, they never come to my class) more important?

I find it both strange and frustrating how schools will negotiate with students regarding their classroom behavior. It's just bizarre to me how much power and control they give kids here.

I mean, I get it. Many schools have their hands tied thanks to the way the system works here.

But I don't get how telling a student that he can sleep in class in order to prevent him from skipping the class altogether is helping anything in any way. All it does is send a bad message to the rest of the class and makes it more difficult to prevent other students from also putting their heads down. It's so stupid. It would be better to keep the problem student in lockdown in an empty classroom, if you're really going to let him do his own thing.
