Teacher’s pet!

The best thing about being
a teacher is that it matters.
The hardest thing about being a teacher
is that it matters every day.”

Once upon a time – NBC

Once upon a time…life was simple and purrfect.

In a twinkling of an eye, I’m all grown up.  
And I had to attend the school’s orientation.

We were told to queue at the school hall like forever.

Then, the teachers took us for a school tour.

Yesterday was the fist day of school.
(Oopsie.., I should have kept my mouth closed
– my two front teeth are missing!)

No worries, Mom..  I’m all ready for Primary One.

Hmmm…it’s time to pay attention and try to look serious.

The part I love most about school is break time.

That’s all folks. Mewry Mewlodies!

“Teachers, I believe,

are the most responsible

and important members of society

because their professional efforts

affect the fate of the earth.”

Joke of the day – Two greatest dangers

I_don't_know

Two kids are sitting in a high school auditorium, listening to the principal give the welcoming speech for the year.

The principal says, “The two greatest dangers that students face are ignorance and apathy.”

One of the students turns to his friend and asks, “Dude, what’s ignorance and apathy?'”

The other student, bored and restless and wanting for the speech to end says, “I don’t know and I don’t care.”

Joke of the day – The Prince

A Saudi Prince went to Germany to study. A month later, he sends a letter to his dad saying: “Berlin is wonderful, people are friendly and I really like it here, but I’m a bit ashamed to arrive in school with my gold Mercedes when all my teachers travel by train.”

Sometime later he gets a letter from his dad with a ten million dollar check saying: “Stop embarrassing us, go and get yourself a train too.”

I Believe

by Jane Daugherty

I believe in children’s laughter, the sweet perfume of a newborn baby’s skin and that every child is entitled to happiness, decent housing, health care, proper nutrition and good education.

I believe that our schools should be places of discovery and growth, not of danger, that teachers should be paid more than lawyers and that parenting should be a required course in every high school.

I believe that “quality time” is a phony notion that cannot substitute for substantial time spent with our children.

I believe that baseball and other children’s games can be magical and should be wrestled from screaming, competitive coaches and returned to play.

I believe that childhood should be a time of sand castles and celebration and that the defense of innocence is as important as the defense of our borders.

And I believe that our most urgent mission should be putting the needs of our children first.
