Real Teachers

Real Teachers . . .

. . . grade papers in the car, during commercials, in faculty meetings, and in the bathroom.

. . . cheer when they hear April 1 does not fall on a school day.

. . . drive older cars owned by credit unions.

. . . have disjointed necks from writing on boards without turning their backs on the class.

. . . are written up in medical journals for size and elasticity of kidneys and bladders.

. . . have been timed gulping down a full lunch in 2 minutes. Master teachers can eat faster than that.

. . . can predict exactly which parents will show up at Open House.

. . . never try to teach the conjugations of lie and lay to eighth graders.

. . . know the shortest distance and the length of travel time from their classroom to the office.

. . . can "sense" gum.

. . . know the difference among what must be graded, what ought to be graded, & what should never again see the light of day.

. . . buy Excedrin and Advil at Costco or Sam's.

. . . will eat anything that is put in the teachers' lounge.

. . . know secretaries and custodians run the school.
