Top 5 Best Teacher Excuses

  • I am going to Florida to see the Chiefs play.

  • I will be getting married tomorrow!!

  • Working on a Parade Float

  • Hunting with son

  • DR appt at 10 AM. Hopefully back after lunch. Never know...

Best Attempt to Game the System

Not sure how this counts - Probably as a personal

day - I am presenting at a conference.

It's an English paper...

can we call it PD? hehe. On a more serious note,

can I get hours for it? I'll be there all day.

Worst "Pep Talk" Left for a Substitute

  • Do not allow the students to just do anything within the classroom because they will try.
  • Bathroom as a class unless i left their name for you to let them go.
  • NO ONE is to be at or behind my desk at any time.
  • All students are to raise their hands to be attended to.
  • Students are to always line up before entering the hallway. You must stay with them in the hallway (SILENT HALLWAYS).
