Oh, your poor, aching back! I hope nothing permanent happened. I once taught at a parochial boys' school. I still have nightmares about it. It is a tough time for kids, true, but it's pretty tough on adults too. Even though I didn't like it at the time, I now appreciate that my parents, especially my dad, kept pretty tight reins on us. But that was back in the Ice Age.


So sorry to hear about your fall. Glad you didn't break something.

With a daughter in 7th and a son in 8th - I feel your trepidation. My son especially is a raging hormone. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes, let me tell you. Give me a cubicle and a keyboard anyday - my kids give me enough of a run for my money - no classroom full of jr. highers for me.

Good luck.


We feel your pain here. I have 5th, 6th and 8th graders. My 8th grade girl is so fed up with some of the boys. No fighting just constant goofy behavior.


I hear ya, Larry. Grateful in hindsight, that's me. Although I swear classrooms weren't so bad 30 years ago when I was in 6th grade. Of course that was the Middle Ages, don't you know. ;)

Thanks Marie. If it goes badly tomorrow I might just take middle schools off my sub list. I could make just as much $$ just subbing at the elementary level & save myself a lot of stress.

Cyndy - my 6th grade boy comes home daily with stories about what's happening in his classrooms. He thinks most of the other boys are stupid - thank goodness hormones haven't nabbed him yet. My 5th grader, however, is starting to spend a LOT of time in front of the mirror......uh oh.


awwww - there's nufink to forgive! Catch ya soon

    ----"The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it." - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

    ----"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Sir Stephen Henry Roberts (1901-1971)
