Bad Teaching Day

I can’t believe it’s already time to share our Friday Flash 55s with the wonderful G-Man.  It’s a story in exactly 55 words with plot and character.  If you’re up to the challenge, write one and go tell the most gracious host about it.

I’ve been digging deep into my past and recalling those fun-filled days of teaching in a placement setting.  Some days were more challenging than others, and some days were almost impossible.  The name has been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.

“White fuckin’ bitch.”

“You need to sit down, Larissa.”  Obviously, it was going to be a long day.  Sometimes it seemed like it would be easier to simply change her name.

The girl plopped into her seat and glared at her teacher, “What?”

“All I said was good morning.” Hopefully she’d finally get to teach.

  1. I home school my 13 year old. I truly believe that school should be the supplement and not the primary source of learning. Parents need to be teaching, whether the child attends a private, public, or online school, parents should be the chief educator for their kids.

  2. P.S. I think probably all your Linky thing was missing, was a click and paste of your specific post title – hence a ‘page not found message’. Better luck next time. 🙂

    • I taught but in private school except some subbing in public. Never ran into that but there were other problems….I would NEVER teach inpublic school. NIce flash. U felt the angst and frustration.
