    I can’t blame him. Teaching 7 and 8 year-olds can drive you nuts.

    She should have qualified her first statement in the first panel.

    Agreed Pam! Middle school is the hardest. It can be also the most rewarding, but it takes a ton of patience!

    I have taught every grade from K-12 grade (currently 9-12); middle schoolers are the worst. They finally notice the opposite sex and try to act all cool. It takes great patience.

    He must have learned kicking and screaming from his students. Perhaps it worked on him.

    Kudos to the guy for teaching. We need more male teachers in the primary grades. They bring a different perspective.

    A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL TEACHERS

    Have a happy Valentine’s Day.

    Maybe you’d like to teach a class where the kids are just reaching PUBERTY???

    A valentine to all teachers! It does seem the puberty hormone surge in students does create the greatest problem, other than them entering politics.

    To impart the knowledge of anything (teaching) is not difficult, no matter what grade. It’s getting them to accept and retain the same.

    Very, very old joke, but still good!

    I’d take his job, as long as flying into the treetops wasn’t involved. I LOVE second-graders!! They’re just taking control of their own learning, but still want to please the teacher. Too bad the System is backwards now. Teachers aren’t treated as professionals, and administrators are free to twist “evaluations” to keep or oust un-tenured teachers. (What, me bitter?)
