You gotta be sharp when you’re in school or you’ll be flat out of luck. Good one, Carl. 😉

I guess they’re planning on doing it A Capella.

Who cares about papers and pens? He grades on a “scale” anyway..
You are setting the curve too high on this scale.

About as high as a Navajo “cleff” dwelling..

I see you know music stuff. I know nothing about music but can make a mean screech blowing on a blade of grass held between my thumbs.

Ah, I went to little ol’ Florida Southern for BA ’71 and Barry College for MA ’80.

You did make me smile with this one! I used to say the same thing quite often to my middle school students. Not a music teacher, but it sure brings back memories! I love your site 😉 WG

I was history teacher 33 years. But teens in Miami so far below grade level my focus was as a reading and writing teacher. If they learned any history – that was a by-product.

😉 I understand. I taught English and some history/Civics during my last 15years. We went to “inclusion” for our special ed. programs, so I had large groups of special needs students mixed in to most classes those last few years. A challenge 😉 Did you have a lot of ESL students? We started getting Spanish speakers who came with little or no English, and they scheduled them into my regular English classes. They were very nice kids, however, and I learned to really enjoy them.

Used to have ESL years back but the communities in Miami are fairly naturally segregated and ESL kids were sent to primarily Spanish population schools. Federal guidelines re racial/ethnic mix are meaningless in Miami Dade as 85% minority and 55% foreign born anyway. The last school at which I taught was 95% Haitian because North Miami has the highest concentration of Haitians in US except for New York City. The foreign kids were such recent immigrants I felt ESL of little help and let them do the lessons in Spanish with Spanish text books but did use English orally somewhat.

Does this school happen to be in “Baton” Rouge? Who else is on “staff”?
February 26th, 2015 at 15:09
OK Mark, two 10’s ! I enjoy the way you trumpet your humor.

You need to rent the movie Whiplash. It gave me a “new”
appreciation for music students!!!! The guy playing the teacher was the biggest SOB I have seen in a long time….haha He even won an Oscar for playing such a good “bad” teacher!
