  2. YOUR CLASSROOM PET PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO YOUR MATH LESSONS THAN YOUR STUDENTS DO
  3. YOUR STUDENTS THINK HOMEWORK IS SOMETHING THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO COPY OFF OF A FRIEND BEFORE SCHOOL
  4. YOUR STUDENTS ARE MORE CURIOUS ABOUT THEIR FINGERNAIL THAN WHAT IS ON THE CHALK BOARD
  5. YOUR STUDENTS ONLY QUESTIONS AFTER YOUR AMAZING HISTORY LESSON IS, "WHEN IS LUNCH?"
  6. DURING STUDY HALL AND SSR YOUR STUDENTS LOOK LIKE THE CAST OF A GEORGE A. ROMERO FILM
  7. YOUR STUDENTS COMMUNICATE REQUESTS BY POINTING, GRUNTING, OR MUMBLING
  8. YOUR SIXTH GRADE CLASS IS NOT SMARTER THAN A 2ND GRADER
  9. PUTT PUTT GOLF PENCILS ARE SHARPER THAN YOUR STUDENTS
  10. YOUR CAT IS BETTER AT FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS THAN YOUR STUDENTS

  12. YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS THINK SCHOOL IS FREE DAYCARE AND BABYSITTING
  13. EVERY TIME YOU CALL A PARENT, YOU THINK, "THE POTATO DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE!"
