    YOu forgot the most important part….

    And the 9 a.m. bell hasn’t even rung yet.

    Thanks for the post

  1. Second reaction is to join in the fun? You are a tattooed renegade now.

  2. You know that you have been teaching REALLY too long when you hear “FIGHT” and you look the other way because you don’t want to document it!

  3. …or you’re just too damn old to get in the way of testosterone-fueled adolescents (male AND female) flailing their arms, legs and whatevers in a small space… just too close to retirement to get hurt, so you become the designated-office-caller and let the youngsters dive in for God and Glory.
