8th grade boys scare me sometimes

Especially when they walk up to me right before track practice wondering if it would be okay if they ran in their boxers if they get too hot.

And especially when I'm not sure how much the question was meant as a joke.

how i solidified one student's hatred with a click of the mouse

The Letter (written in much kinder language, but with the same general message):

Dear Mrs. Joseph's Mom,

I am writing to inform you that your son is obnoxious. His grades suck, and he's lazy. Thanks for listening!

Ms. Reed

And then it was sent. And then I realized it's Joseph's birthday. So now I suck.

and then i almost got kicked out of the indoor soccer game

The one that I was "coaching."

Just because I look 15 does not mean that I am 15.

"Um, excuse me, ref? What's the problem here?"
"We need an adult out here with these kids. Oh. Oops. I guess you are one. Sorry."

there was almost a fight in my class on friday

Until I kicked the kids out of class and yelled at them for being immature.

It was the talk of the whole ninth grade. Awesome.

sometimes i like working at a catholic school

Especially when the "Christian inspirational" speaker informs the audience of 115 15-year-olds that he is about to "lose his christianity."

Except that I have to try REALLY hard not to laugh, cause I'm supposed to be the mature adult here.
