Having a teacher in the family and someone who works in the school office, I can really appreciate the humor in your puzzle. Cute!

Thanks, it was totally meant to be a joke. The teachers at my school are some of the most dedicated people I have ever seen. They work tirelessly and never get the credit that they deserve. BUT, we do laugh on a daily basis also. It is good for the soul.

great puzzle; lots of fun to do one that you need lateral thinking for, and no books /google to help.

My daughter is a 6th grade teacher. I'm sure she would have liked this one. Good word puzzle

I'd have been much better off itf I hadn't absent-mindedly left out a word in my last puzzle. You know, I recently switched supplements to one that contains ginko biloba, and since then I've been making a lot more dumb mistakes like that. I wonder if it's having the opposite effect on me than it's supposed to.

Marvelous puzzle, Marsha.

Oh, don't we wish some of those were true. I have to keep my mouth shut though on which ones though.

Thanks for the laughs!

Very funny! and cleverly written. My good friends is a 4th grade teacher and I don't see how she ever has two neurons to rub together by Friday!

Well done! I can only imagine what teachers would really like to say sometimes, but grin and bear it instead.

Oh. I didn't know Marsha was trying to be humorous. The ones I had are just the facts!

JK - it was great!

I wish those things WERE just funnies to us. My teacher best friend always said there should be a ritalin mist at the door as the kids come in. I don't believe in ritalin. I'm a big believer in light tazing after the first warning. And a free margarita machine in the office.

Thanks for all the positive thoughts. I sincerely appreciate those.
I had a particularly difficult child recently and was actually scared for awhile. He told me that I was going to be sorry that I had ever met him (a true understatement) and he started popping his knuckles. Without going into any details, it turned out fine but there were definitely some tense moments for me there. I was relating all of this to my son later. He said, "Mom, why didn't you just 'mace' him?" I nearly fell out of my chair the first place, if a teacher did that, she would be fired so quickly it would make her head swim. I think that is why I make jokes about teaching what I do....if I don't laugh, I will be in a strait jacket and headed for the funny farm. The children are far from what they used to be. I dearly love most of them and I do run into to some of them later and it is really encouraging to know that they do remember my name. Who would have thought? I am not overly poplular because of what I do, but they do all realize that I care about them and am trying to get them to make better choices. That being said......I can either laugh or cry........and I choose to laugh because who knows, tomorrow, I might really make a difference in someone's life. Thanks for taking my puzzle.

Marsha, please post all 10 when your WP closes.

I take those threats I hear about much more seriously now because of something I saw. I heard a student threaten a new teacher at a school where I was in just about the same words with which you were threatened. No one wanted to believe it was anything but a student acting up and mouthing off.

That student's young uncle murdered someone and was soon murdered by another person - so violence ran seriously in his family. I don't know what your school's rules are about threats, and I'm sure you handled it per those rules, but please don't take any student's threats lightly. We never know what they're being taught at home.

Great puzzle and I laughed out loud a few times. It is so true that kids aren't like they used to be.

I can really relate to the idea of laugh when you might cry. Was in education for 30 years and your puzzle made me chuckled at how true it is. Bless all our teachers; they need it and deserve it!

Lots of fun! Although my teaching days are long over (I did it for 25 years!) I will never forget the good and bad times of this important profession. Thanks for a wonderful WP.
