Teaching – 10 Things They Don’t Tell You

Relief Teaching and David Letterman

Ahhh Teaching!

Teaching is certainly a noble craft. And those who enter the profession - well that makes them noble craftsman (or is it crafts person).

Teaching - What they don't tell you.

Watch this David Letterman top 10 list and see if you can relate to any of these situations.

I know there are hundreds more.

Like when little Billy says, "Do you want to see what I brought for Show and Tell?" you should never say YES in public. Check first.

Wise teachers will check before anyone brings their show and tell.

Weird things when teaching?

What sort of weird things have you seen from Show and Tell when you have been teaching in the classroom.

I have seen false teeth, divorce papers, bedroom pleasure toys, condoms. One little fellow even brought along a joint he found beside Dad's bed.

Show and Tell brings out all the weird stuff.

But this  noble profession offers so much more.

Student Names in Teaching.

If you are young, I can guarantee you will know what names you will NEVER use for your own children. These are probably the names you call out most in your own day.

I also bet you have been called some weird names too.

Have you ever been called Mum, Dad, Nanna, Pop, Grandma ...

I suppose that is a privilege to be called a member of the family - riiighht!

If course there are also a few things you shouldn't do.

10 Things you shouldn't do when teaching.


Go on, let it all out?

I know you want to share the silly things, the funny things, the weird things that have happened to you.

You can do always use humour as a weapon yourself instead of being on the receiving end all the time.

Have you ever diffused a situation with humour?
