Pop Quiz!

As second period began today I realized I needed a couple items from Mr. Richmond next door. I told my students that I was running next door (and I literally ran) to grab some posters and they didn't even want to breathe loudly if they knew what was good for them. I got nods and "yes, ma'ams". Well, you know how that goes. So I literally ran down the hall and back, and as I came back in the door they were talking and laughing and having a good old time. I warned them! So I announced my presence by telling them to clear their desks except for a piece of paper. Yep, I gave a pop quiz, and roughly 95% failed. Oops! Guess we should take notes now, huh? I told them they didn't want to not do what I asked. Next time maybe they'll listen!

Then we had a bomb threat/fire drill this afternoon, so we got to spend a lovely hour outside on the football field/stands in the muggy air. I'm thankful I didn't have my white pants on today because we definitely trudged through some mud. It has nearly rained solid for 2 days. Fun times.

Tomorrow is singular/plural/possessive nouns. Whoo-hoo!

You go girl! Show them you mean business and that you're not gonna' take any "You Know What"....

Sorry you had to trudge through the mud today. But you haven't really lived until you've had some immature high school kid come down your hall spraying "fart spray" and stinking up the place.... :)

Keep up the good work!!! It will pay off.
