I once accidentally wore two different shoes to work. And after one of my students informed me that today’s not the day I get to give life advice, another student informed me that if I was part of a gang, I would be called “Andy Two Shoes.”

I had had a really tough day with one of my students that was just challenging, we’ll say. And afterwards, you know, we had a heart to heart, and he said, “You know, miss, you are my favorite teacher.” And before I could stop myself, I said, “Dear God, what is it like for the teachers that you don’t like?”

I had one student tell another student to consume a satchel of Richards, which is impolite. But it also did lead to me recommending them for AP Language the next year because, I mean, you’ve got to encourage that kind of control of the English language.

On Fridays, before students left for the weekend, I would tell them not to make a life, take a life, and not get arrested. And one day, one of my students looked at me and said, “You know what, miss? We love you, but you can’t be infringing on our rights like that.”

One of my students came back from taking a fat dump in the bathroom. And I said, “Welcome back.” And he said, “Do you want to see a picture?” I said, “I do not. Thank you. Why are you taking pictures of your dumps?” And he said, “For the group chat.”

One of my students was late to class and I didn’t think anything of it. But then he came back in and he said, “Did you check your DMs on Instagram?” and I was like, “I’m instructing.” And he said, “You should check,” and I looked and he messaged me that he was taking a massive dump. And he also included an audio file. And I had to explain to him that at no point in time ever will I open an audio file from him that he sends from the bathroom. He swore up and down that it was just him explaining that he was going to be a little late to class. But we’ll never know for sure.

My students were asking what I was going to be eating for lunch, and I told them I had a sandwich. They said, “Are you excited?” I said, “Not really, the bread’s a little bit dry. You know, so, not great.” And one of my students said, “Dry and crusty, just like your mom.”

I was getting observed and the principal walked in the room and the principal sat down behind this girl. And this girl just turned and she looked at the principal. Then she looked at me and she looked at the principal. Then she looked at me. Then she started giving me this nod, like… And I was like, no, no, I’m not nodding back because I don’t know exactly what the extent of your nod is that you want me to nod. I’m not agreeing to anything that you’re about to do. And then she looked back at the principal, looked at me, looked at the principal, and ripped out a chunk of her hair, looked at the principal and went and just blew the hair in the direction of the principal.

I was introducing ‘Lord Of The Flies’ and I was so excited. I had green streamers up. I was playing Welcome to the Jungle. And I had this kind of like escape room scenario where I made the students kind of take control of the class and do this whole activity together. And it just descended into chaos. It was so cool and I’d worked so hard on it. Afterwards, I’m having them write a reflection. And one of the students said at the very end, “I thought we were going to do something fun today.”

I was trying to get them to give me examples of words that weren’t swear words, but not really phrases or words that we would use in a classroom environment. One of my students said, “Well, blue waffle.” And I said, “What’s that?” They said “Google it.” And I did.

I had a student pull out a loaf of bread, a jar of jelly, and a jar of peanut butter, and start making himself peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at 8:00 in the morning while I was teaching. And I said, “What are you doing?” And he said, “I’m making breakfast. Did you want some?” “Yes, please.”

Two girls got into a full-on brawl in my class, like scratching and the hair pulling and all of that. Eventually they were returned to my classroom and I asked them like, “What happened?” She said, “Miss, she said my elbow looks like an uncrustable. I’m not about to let that stand.”

One day I was walking between classes and I saw a group of boys huddled together, all had something between their fingers. And somebody had a lighter in the center. And I’m like, ‘In the broadest of daylights, really?’ So I went up and I said, “Hey, you guys,” and they turned around, and every single one of them was holding a dry spaghetti noodle between their fingers.

I was giving my students a little bit of context before we started reading ‘Animal Farm’. So I put up a picture of Joseph Stalin and one of my students yelled, “Smash.” And I explained that maybe we should not ‘smash’ evil dictators and she said, “It’s okay, I’ll still take that mustache ride.”

In the middle of teaching, this kid just took a COVID test. He swabbed and he took it. And another kid looked at him and he goes, “Yo, I swear to God, if that test is positive, I’m breaking your jaw.” And I just looked at him, I was like, “You better hope it’s negative.”

One of my students figured out how to make GIFs, so naturally, they created a GIF of their male friend twerking and embedded it into a slideshow before submitting it to me.


When we finished reading Lord Of The Flies, I served my students some pulled pork that I had made myself, and I was really excited to share it with them. And after they had eaten it, one of my students came up and said, “Wow, miss, I’m really impressed.” And I was like, “Why?” And he said, “You just seem the type that wouldn’t pepper your eggs because it gets too spicy. But this is good.”

I tried to tell my students that smoking marij**na was probably not a great choice for their growing brains and bodies. And one of my students said, “Oh, yeah, well, but Egyptians smoked w**d and they built the pyramids.” It’s not the worst argument.

My students were coming in and I said, “Guys, have a seat. We’re gonna do a movie today.” And one of my students said, “Oh, dead a*s?” I said, yep, dead… what…
