It’s too painful. I can’t go on… (As seen on: http://www.buzzfeed.com)

Me:  Angelina, did you do your homework?
A:  Sorry Teacher, but I didn’t do it.
Me:  And why didn’t you do it?
A:  Because my leg hurt.
Kevin:  Really! Really!? (something I say to them often)
Max: Your leg!? You see the lesson plans with your eyeballs.

Ah the power of a caffeine fix… (Courtesy: giphy.com)


My school has a policy that if students come 1-10mins late, it’s late; 10min+ is absent.  A few of my computer class students came almost 20min late for the first time.

They walk in smiling in a hurry.

Students:  Hi Teacher. Good morning Teacher!
Me: … =_= mmmhmmmm.
Students:  Teacher Teacher Teacher, before you say anything, let us explain.
Me:  mhmmm.
Students:  Teacher, we were a little bit late because we were really tired. Very very veeeery tired.
Me:  …. Mhmm…
Students:  So, we had to go get coffee.
Me:  Oh, that’s good because there’s coffee right next door in the library  …
Students:  No, teacher. That coffee is really bad, it’s terrible!!!
Me:  Nope, not an excuse for being late.
Students:  Teeeeeaaaacher!!!

Ah, the fun and joy my students give me.

Puppy Eyes - 1920x1200

How can you not fall for those eyes!? (Courtesy: wallpapersdb.org)

When I asked one of my students if he had any final questions after he finished his final exam he blurted out “I love you” and looked at me with sad puppy eyes before storming out of the room, never to return to my life again.

Le Sigh..

Getting to Know TMI

12 Apr

heheheheh you done? Me too. Great…
(Courtesy: mrwgifs.com)

Him:  Can I come to your office now to “Chit Chat”? (a 5-minute conversation assignment)
Me:  You don’t need to.  You were my student last semester and we talk all the time.  I know your level.  But, you can if you want.
Him:  I want to.  Right now.  Maybe we can get to know each other better.
Me:  O.o  Ok, but quickly.  (I realize now that this comment just made this whole conversation sooo much worse.)
His conversation lasted for TWENTY MINUTES.  -_-

Test Services

31 Mar

How many points did I give their answers you ask? Hmm…
(Courtesy: twistedsifter.com)


While I was grading midterms, a few of my students decided to tell me about their skills.

One guy volunteered to teach me Microsoft Excel.  He’s my age too…if he was American, I’d think he was trying to be slick.
One girl offered to teach me the piano and invited me to her next recital so I could basically audition her as my instructor.


Lesson here?  The more tests this foreign professor gives out, the more free services she will get!
