Random Notions and Stories of Teaching

Big Trouble

We (the teachers of our district) are in for big trouble. As I've mentioned, they're raising class sizes in our district to save money.

However, teachers don't think it's going to go too well.


Consider the following conversation today between Math Teacher and a summer school student (4th grader in the fall).

Principal: Here are your ice cream coupons for having perfect attendance this week at summer school! (Principal passes out coupons and leaves)
SSS: (looking at their coupon in confusion) Mrs...is this coupon good for the ice cream, too?
MT: Uh...yes, it's for an ice cream cone.
Oh, so we get ice cream too!? Awesome!

I believe the words you are looking for are...Oy vey.
