was laughing remembering when as anew teacher I put
"william had a big___" as a fill in the gaps sentence for a very weak group on the board.

as i wrote it out I was reading it, and i started helpless gufffawing. It was so bad i was weeping and couldnt turn around...

WHat have you done?

Laughed at a child who fell over a chair when I made him leave he room. To be fair he was constantly doing things like that to gain attention and get laughs. Had to look out the window for a bit once is checked he was ok!

One of my colleagues had to go home at playtime after a staff night out because she was so hungover.

Our head was not happy!

My colleague had to go to sleep in a cupboard during a free period after a heavy night out

I've just remembered the trip I went on when I was a student teacher. I rolled out of a club at 3am, got up to go into school for a 7am coach pickup and promptly slept for for the entire 2 and a half hour journey from Bristol to London, despite the racket of 45 Y6s.

My judgypants would be round my ears if a student I was mentoring did that now!

The first time I taught in reception, I gave them all a piece of paper titled 'what I did in the summer holidays'..
I thought they could write what they did!! I had pretty much most of the class in tears saying they couldn't do it... Not a great start to the year but they got over itwink

I went behind a girl I thought was my daughter in the library yesterday and put my hands round her neck and made throttling noises.

Needless to say it wasn't my daughter.

I couldn't help but laugh, and said 'Oh good grief! I think I have done that before!'

The girl said 'Yes, you have.'

It appears that I have assaulted this girl in this manner earlier this year. Mortifying! Fortunately she does not have a phobia about people touching her neck, and thought it was really funny as well.

DSs teacher sent a letter out saying the class would all need "willies" instead of "wellies".

His other teacher also forgot to tell the sub that we withdraw DS from religious assembly's (atheist).

He came out of school with an ash cross on his forehead waving a palm crucifix. His teacher was mortified (it was quite funny actually).

Got the giggles when a boy with autism suddenly started shouting "YOU ARE FAT!" at the teacher. That went down well.

Actually, I get the giggles quite a lot.

I broke a 'show and tell' item this week :-(

Luckily it's new and replaceable at not much cost. The pupil as OK about it, but I was mortified.

I was trying so desperately hard to ensure that I said 'organism' when doing science with a yr 4 class, that of course the word 'orgasm' popped out!!

TA and I manage to fudge over it and the children didn't have a clue thank God!

Bobby jones, did you type "bad teacher" into the search box by any chance?

Laughed when I heard one of my naughty Year 10 boys had hurt his knee playing football. I like the boy, but he´s very cheeky. I´m sure he would have done the same if it had been me with the injury.

I did feel bad afterwards, though.

orangeandemons Our school nurse´s beds are used almost exclusively by knackered or hungover teachers. She shushes the sick children and sends away any timewasters so the teachers can have a kip in peace.

On the morning I was meant to present our book week assembly, I woke late, shoved yesterday's trousers and a clean top on, and drove in. I delivered the assembly with yesterday's knickers peeping from the bottom of a trouser leg. One of my students pointed it out.

Lost a pupils gold earrings blush

Worst ever was when a child (7 years) was getting out of the pool, as I was speaking to his mother, the child filled his swimming cap up with water and threw it in my face!

I was saturated. For some god awful reason, for a snap second I went to smack his bum! The screeching of brakes in my head was deafening and just as quick I stopped.

His mother was aghast at what he had done but non the wiser I was just about to assault her son.

Was the end of term..... Those kids snapped every last bloody nerve I had that year!

Walking my Reception class back from assembly one day, there was a bit of a traffic jam, so I decided to take them round the other way, which involved negotiating a heavy fire door.
On approaching this door, you had to pull it to open it, but also needed to put a bit of oomph behind it, as it tended to stick.
Thinking my class were further back than they were, I gave the door an almighty heave... smack into the head of a 5 year old boy. Needless to say, he went flying, landed on the ground with a thump and got a massive egg on his head.

I've never rushed a child to first aid for an ice-pack so fast in my entire life.
I'm literally going "GET OUT THE WAY!" As I drag a screaming, hysterical child by the hand behind me.
