Erasing My Sanity!

Just rediscovered Kimberly Chambers' Erasing My Sanity on my bookshelf. It's a collection of one-liners that capture the all-too-true reality of teaching that will test the sanest of individuals.

Here are a few of my faves:
  • Stress is... Grading a complete set of tests using the wrong answer key.
  • You receive a make-over gift from your class. What are they trying to say?
  • A parent wants to know why you made grammatical corrections to their note.
  • Your principal revokes your personal days off for mandatory training.
  • The lesson plan is followed only when you're absent.
  • A parent thinks its rude to teach manners in class.
  • Wouldn't it be great to be a teacher and make a coach's salary?
  • For some mysterious reason, every student made a 100 on the test...
