Ten Things Actually Written in the Margins of My Old Plan Books

  1. My god, I want to punch you in the face.
  2. What do you think you’re going to do with the notebook paper? Shove it up your ass?!
  3. MM has ascended to the heights of idiocy.
  4. CP needs to calm his hormones. He flirts with every girl I sit him next to. You could probably put a goddamn monkey next to him and he’d try to hump it.
  5. When MK speaks, I want to stab myself in the head with a pencil.
  6. OMFG, he’s talking about The Terminator again.
  7. The pencil is sharp by now, Jaime, so SIT THE FUCK DOWN!
  8. Why does it always smell like cat piss in this class?
  9. Stephanie, to Mike: “You FAGGOT! Why can’t you bring some pencils?”
  10. Arrggghhhhh! I f’ing hate you!

  1. ^^^This is why I read your blog and like your page of FB. My teacher friends and I talk about these kinds of thoughts ALL the time and I love that I have the type of people surrounding me that can admit they feel that way. I truly believe it is normal to think things like “Are you FUCKING kidding me?” or “If I have to read your writing one more fucking time I am going to scoop my own eyes out with a rusty spoon!” There are people though that say they NEVER feel this way. I just don’t believe it. I love my job, love most of my students, and give each of them the respect they deserve, but if I have to hear the “word” bruh one more time or see “you” written as “u” I may bash my own head against a wall.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. I love my kids more than anything, but these thoughts are totally normal, and to me, they’re part of the job! You can look back and laugh at them.
