When I tell people I’m a teacher and they look at me all wide-eyed and say, “YOU’RE a teacher? The boys must loooove you.” Yes, because that’s why I became a teacher— to give high school boys something to look at.
When parents blame you for their kids not doing their work. I have a kid who doesn’t pay attention in class no matter how hard I try and, as a result, never turns in his work. The parent has blamed me for her son sending it to the wrong email and now checks to make sure I’ve gotten his homework because “[I] have problems” receiving her sons homework.
