“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
today was hilarious cos i was in sir's office gobbling an early lunch and chatting away and another teacher came in and we were all yakking and then she said, it's period 3 eh, and sir looked at me and said, you know you're teaching period 3?? and i WAS!!! but i had thought i was teaching period 4 cos sir had given me an extra class period 5 and it had thrown my calculations out (that's my story and i'm sticking to it. blonde unmathematician). so i grabbed my trolley (yes, a trolley) and sprinted over to the classroom and thankfully another lovely angel teacher was with them - doing maths all beautifully - in absolute silence. five mins later i had apologised to the kiddos for my blondeness and we were all back to our usual noisy chatty selves.
oh but i think i need a volume control miracle... i have no idea how to keep a classroom quiet (apart from all that nasty threatening power-control stuffs) - and unfortunately THAT seems to be the measure of a good teacher - so i might have to bribe the kids for a good performance on tues.... because i have a PRINCIPAL'S VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!! *GASP!!* yes that is all caps.
