Sup Teach?

Sup Teach?, a group edublog for new teachers, is the sort of blog you toss in your feedreader to keep your eye on that incoming link you received the other day but which, even though it’s ramshackle and scattered (the category list in the sidebar includes “king koopa” and “slaying dinosaur-esque turtles,” for no obvious reason) you can’t bring yourself to unsubscribe, simply because it’s too much fun.

Consider “When expletives lead to memorable teaching moments“:

Student 1: “Miss S., you look pretty today!”

Ms. S: “Why? Do I usually look nerdy?”

Student 2: “No, I dunno where you got that.”

Student 3: “She always looks pretty, dumbass. I like your vest Ms. S.”

Ms. S.: “Ladies and gentlemen, we do not use that compound word in my class. BUT…it’s compound words ROLL OUT TIME!”

Student 5: “Bittersweet!”

Student 6: “Basketball!”

Student 7: “Bathroom!”

Student 8: “Sunset!”

Student 9: “Redwood.”

Ms. S.: “Redwood?!”

Student 9: “Yea, it was in our pop quiz yesterday, remember?”

Ms. S.: “OH. Yea.”

Gah. Too fun. Reminds me of when I was a new teacher, and young, so long ago.

    So expletives lead to memorable teaching moments?

    Student 1: “How was last night?”

    Student 2: “My boyfriend tea-bagged me.”

    Mr. R (shutting off overhead projector): “Well, I’m f-in done.”

    Wanna guess who had the ‘memorable’ day off without pay?

    Thanks for the shout! We HIGHLY appreciate it. And I’m glad we remind you of yourself as a young teacher :) Hopefully, this means we’ll be where you’re at one day.

    Never got to thank you for the shout out.

    Since then, our readership has increased almost threefold.

    In other news, I just crossed one item off my bucket list.
