    I didn't put this under jokes, because I really don't see it as one, but it's cute.

    THE TEACHER APPLICANT ---------THIS IS A GOOD ONE.

    After being interviewed by the school administration,

    the teaching prospect said,

    "Let me see if I've got this right:

    You want me to... go into that room with all those kids,

    1. correct their disruptive behavior,
    2. observe them for signs of abuse,
    3. monitor their dress habits,
    4. censor their T-shirt messages,
    5. and instill in them a love for learning.

    You want me to..

    6 - check their backpacks for weapons,
    7 - wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and
    8 - raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.

    You want me to....

    9 - teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and
    10 - how to register to vote,
    11 - balance a checkbook, and
    12 - apply for a job.

    You want me to

    13 - check their heads for lice,
    14 - recognize signs of anti-social behavior, and
    1 5 - make sure that they all pass the state exams.

    You also want me to

    16 - provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and
    17 - communicate regularly with their parents in English and Spanish by letter, telephone, conferences, email, homework hotline, web page, midterm newsletters, and report card.

    You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

    You want me to do all this and then you tell me......

    "I CAN'T PRAY?"

    Are you nuts!

    and you better do all that every class or you are held legally reasponsible


    I love teaching but if i could change one thing I'd remove cell phones from the world ---
    I have had more work added because of cell phones then people can imagine -

    I had a student get hired at Akron Children's hospital Awesome entry job --
    he lost it day 3 cuz he was caught pocket texting during work hours

    last night was a half hour calming a girl cuz her bf broke up with her via text ---

    I have to watch for pics being taken of my test
    you can't go to the br during tests because of kids texting answers to each other it is a mess

    I do make different versions of the same tests, just mix up the questions, and make sure each group gets a good mix. I love teaching, I hate the politics involved though, that take away a teacher's rights and safety.
