On being confrontational

Just had 2A and 2H in succession. Collectively they are 2 aaaaaaahhhhhh!


Anyway, Mr Chalk's* remarks on the confrontational qualities of red ink reminded me of these helpful pupil notes some teachers leave when you inherit their classes.

Things like, "Jordan McAsshole (Jordan: always a bad sign, in my experience) - shouldn't be allowed access to glue or scissors under any circumstances."

This sort of thing is helpful.

Less so are things like, "Jamie McFuckwit - doesn't like confrontation."

Oh really? Well, he's got a funny way of showing it, is all I can say.

September weekend coming up.

Teaching is like hitting your head against a wall; it feels really good when you stop.

*"We read to know we are not alone" - cheesy but true line from an Anthony Hopkins movie.
