Period 2-3 – Another teacher is supposed to be teaching in my classroom. His class arrives, but no teacher. Finally, twenty minutes in, some learners come to tell me that the teacher is not coming, but they have some notes for the class to copy and some tests to give back. Pretty upset at the teacher, but okay. Then the learner starts announcing everyone’s test scores at the front of the class. “Whoa! What are you doing?”
“Sir said I must read everyone’s scores.”
“Okay, no, we’re not doing that, just give people back their tests.”
The other learner who was writing notes on the board sits down. She has written six lines. “Where are the other notes?”
“That’s all miss.”
“For the whole double period?”
Grrr…I spent the rest of the double period separating fighting boys, trying to get people to return stolen belongings, and asking everyone to stay quiet.
Add that to the fact that the bells didn’t ring on time so my classes were always late, and the fact that the printer is STILL out of ink a month after it ran out. Not a good day at school.
