It's back to school time

Parents have been rejoicing and teachers too. Why not in this tough economy it's nice just to have a job, and for the most part teachers love their jobs.

She tried to tell the faculty a virus has been recently discovered in Blarney (not sure if that's the real name).

"It turns children into monsters," Mrs. Patterson exclaimed.

"That pretty well sums up most of the students here," Mrs. Monroe said. 

Mrs. Patterson frowned. "If you tried making learning interesting like me, you'd see what a difference it could make."

"Fun? School is for leaning, not fun."

Mrs. Patterson face fell for a moment, but an animated grin split her face. "No," she insisted. "It should be fun." 

"The government doesn't call for fun just good MEAP numbers." 

"Putting more pressure on kids isn't going to help the numbers." 

The door slams open and students bob up the hallway toward them. 

"Told you so," Mrs. Patterson said. 

Just when you thought school wouldn't get any crazier. It just did.

Hi, Madison. I popped over from LinkedIn and just realized you are also in Michigan. (bloody MEAP)--I love Mrs. Patterson--my kids have a couple of her, thankfully. My son came home from 8th grade science Thursday very excited about his chemically altered pennies...

She's based on a real science teacher. She makes it fun to learn science. The MEAP should be banned!! Thanks for dropping by.
