    14-- PLEASE EXCUSE JIMMY FOR BEING. IT WAS HIS FATHER'S FAULT. {You know, this could be legit!}

    15-- I KEPT BILLIE HOME BECAUSE SHE HAD TO GO CHRISTMAS SHOPPING BECAUSE DON'T KNOW WHAT SIZE SHE WEAR.

    16-- PLEASE EXCUSE JENNIFER FOR MISSING SCHOOL YESTERDAY. WE FORGOT TO GET THE SUNDAY PAPER OFF THE PORCH, AND WHEN WE FOUND IT MONDAY. WE THOUGHT IT WAS SUNDAY.

    17-- MY DAUGHTER WAS ABSENT YESTERDAY BECAUSE SHE WAS TIRED. SHE SPENT A WEEKEND WITH THE MARINES. {I absolutely LOVE that one!}

    18-- PLEASE EXCUSE JASON FOR BEING ABSENT YESTERDAY. HE HAD A COLD AND COULD NOT BREED WELL.

HER SISTER WAS ALSO SICK, FEVER AN SORE THROAT, HER BROTHER HAD A LOW GRADE FEVER AND ACHED ALL OVER. I WASN'T THE BEST EITHER SORE THROAT AND FEVER. THERE MUST BE SOMETHING GOING AROUND, HER FATHER EVEN GOT HOT LAST NIGHT.

    NOW WE KNOW WHY PARENTS ARE SCREAMING FOR BETTER EDUCATION FOR OUR KIDS.

    January 32 and 33, huh? #16 was simply incredible.

    Kind of helps validate my irritation with the schools for sending young kids home with homework instead of having the teachers teach in class - these are the people helping those kids with their homework...

    We need to start licensing people to reproduce. It seems the more ignorant people are, the more kids they spit out. Makes for a great population.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Many of those were probably forged by the students.....its usually very easy to tell, but since we can't see the actually writing those are pretty hilarious.

    My roomate in college was a Early Childhood Ed. major and one of the dumber people I met in life. The stories are endless of "stupid" moments and I thank god that I live 500 miles from his school district.

    I believe that I am an EXCELLENT teacher, which is part of the reason there is a waiting list for my class each year. I was raised by two parents who were also incredible teachers. I know tons of people who are excellent teachers. However, there are many people who should NOT be teachers (as there are complete morons in EVERY industry). Some might argue that it's not as important to be competent in other industries, but I would disagree. Who wants an inadequate doctor, brakes mechanic, pilot, etc.? Every job in our world is an important one. Fortunately, most teachers are not in it for the money (because there is none to be had in our career). However, there are some that are bitter because of the low pay and therefore, don't give a rat's ass about their job (and that is a shame and to the detriment of the children they will come into contact with). I'm a firm believer, however, that the most important teacher in a child's life should be his/her parent. Just my $.02.

    This is so true though. I have seen my share of those kinds of notes...none of which could have been written by the students( I did pre-k and now special ed) I have one parent now that we know for a fact can't read. He tries to write....spells the best that he can! Sometimes it takes 2 other teachers to figure out what his notes say.

    C'mon now, there's plenty of great teachers out there - there's plenty of shitty ones too, but you can't lump 'em all together just because our educational system has been handicapped by parents, administrators and good old fashioned political correctness.

    It takes a special person to be a teacher - I like to think I'm a reasonably intelligent person, but I've never really been able to successfully impart my knowledge to others. I'm rather impatient and I become especially frustrated when people just don't seem to "get it" - not exactly the type of qualities you want in a teacher. Of course I want to teach my kids how to comport themselves amongst society, but trying to teach them how to read and do mathematics - nah, I'd rather someone do that who has the patience to stick it out and not become judgemental when things aren't going as planned.
