It's the oddest thing you've ever seen...
Teachers don't often have to be students, but there's those few times a month when you must be the student and the principal is the Head Master.
Now me, I'm a nerd when it comes to learning things. I'm alert, attentive, and I'm staring the speaker dead in the eyes. I'm not the typical teacher.
My principal, is a very nice lady and she means business. During our faculty conference today we were going over all of the staff information that we need for the year. It was a packet of papers about an inch thick so you wanted to listen.
To keep from calling any teachers out, she told all of us as a group to close the packet until she was ready to go over it, but some teachers were hard of hearing and they kept reading and reading.
She finally had to call someone by name, just like teachers do in a classroom when the person you keep given chances to, is just not listening.
And what do you think the teacher did? The same thing the kids do -- get an attitude and talk back.
Only thing is, this is a grown woman, a teacher.
There were teachers giggling amongst each other and the Principle, had to stop and give them "the look". You know what look I'm talking about, the one where the teacher doesn't even open her mouth, but you know you got caught and you're soo embarrassed.
This one Ladies conversation got so loud that the Principle asked her what was catching her attention so much that she felt the need to interrupt. This teacher and the Principle went back and forth for a few awkward seconds.
I sat there in amazement.
