Today in Class: Random Funnies

I overheard two students talking. The girl had recently come out, and was working up the nerve to ask another girl out to the prom.

Boy: Just ask her already!

Girl: I want to, but I'm scared! I love her so much! I want to marry her and be with her forever and--

Boy: I hope you don't think you can have babies with her.

Girl: We could adopt.

Boy: You've got different mechanics, that's all I'm saying.


Also overheard in the hall:
Kid: I'm going to Creative Writing Club after school today!

History Teacher: Oh, you're part of the Mrs. Revis fan club?

Ack! The eternal battle between the History Department and the English Department rages on!


 At the Creative Writing Club meeting, I had the kids make posters advertising a call for entries to our literary magazines. My favorite poster? The one that said:

Bring your entries to E-Rizzle's in Room 111, yo!

I always look forward to these windows into your classroom.

I love the E-Rizzle moniker. How cool to have daily access to all that material!

People think I became a teacher for altruistic reasons ... it's really just because I wanted to laugh a lot (and have great stories). Thanks for the gems you share : )

My dad taught high school history on and off for years, and he always swore that the English teachers hated him. He told me it was a clash of personalities. I just laughed and rolled my eyes (I taught middle school social studies and had no clashes with English teachers), but maybe he was right. Interesting....

The Mrs. Revis fan club -- I guess we're all a part of that :)

Ello - Ellen Oh said...

Unknown said...

That is classic. Oh my! Okay, E-Rizzle?

Elana Johnson said...

Ha ha ha! E-Rizzle! Yo, dawg.

Oh, who hasn't given one of their profs a gangster nickname?

My friend once named our math teacher G-woolie-woolie. His face when she said that was awesome. :)

I can't tell you how happy it makes me to read this--things have changed SO MUCH (even if not enough) since I was in school!

And yay for Mrs. Revis!
