For all of my junior high and high school students – past and present – you are, after all, my inspiration…
My grammar is just as terrible as anyone else’s. The only difference is that I tell people I have a degree that allows me to make up new words.
I showed my students a photo from my wedding.
Student: Is that your husband?
Me: Yep. I know… He’s a hottie.

I may or may not have a student who constantly stands up in class, and whose name sounds remarkably like my dog’s…
I may or may not have told him, “Sit, Odin, sit.”

I once told a student that he made me want to throw a book at his head. But I wouldn’t, because I liked his bow tie.
Brutal Honesty for the win. #Nofilter #OutOfContext #DressForSuccess
Student: Are you coming to watch our volleyball game?
Me: Sorry, can’t. I need to go shopping because I no longer fit into my pants.
One week later.
Student: So, did you get pants that fit?
Me, pulling up the top of my new maternity gear: Yup! Check out how high these things go!

At first, I refused to tell my students how old I was. “You’re too young to be married,” one told me.
Flattery will get you everywhere. #ApparentlySixteenAndPregnant #Liar
Me: I’m thinking about writing a novel for NaNoWriMo. What do you guys think?
Students: You should write about us!
Me: Payback Time… #YoullBeSorry #NameChange
At the end of one of my most serious, inspiring, sermons on education and taking learning seriously… I finished with a double trip over the projector cord.Slick.

Me: Anyone have any other questions about Renaissance Literature?
Student: Have you ever seen Deadpool?

I once duct taped my students’ mouths shut, and I have the photo to prove it.

Me: Don’t ever let yourself come across as ignorant
Student: What does that mean?
Me: It means you don’t know as much as you think you know
Student: Oh, I knew that.

Assignment: Write a narrative based on this photo
Student Writes: I don’t know.
