Tuesday Smiles - Funnies from Teachers

With school out for most of us, I thought these stories were pretty funny. If you enjoy them, follow the link to read the whole article.

Why Waste Paper?
I recently asked a student where his homework was. He replied, “It’s still in my pencil.”

After a coworker had finished his English lecture and his class had filed out, a tenth grader stayed 
behind to confront him.
“I don’t appreciate being singled out,” he told his teacher.
The teacher was confused. “What do you mean?”
“I don’t know what the ‘oxy’ part means, but I know what a ‘moron’ 
is, and you looked straight at me when you said it.”

Driven Crazy
During the driver’s-ed class that my friend taught, a student approached a right turn.

“It doesn’t matter. It might help those behind you.”

because she’s just a little bit smarter than you.”
