People are being very thankful today on Facebook, which is nice.
One of my friends gave a shout out to high school teachers, and I couldn’t agree more!
I attended public school, and even during my high school years, my teachers easily spent half of their time disciplining students. Corporal punishment was still enforced back in my day, so lots of students were sent to the principal to get ‘licks.’
But some of the more creative teachers took a different route.
I had an English teacher who would stick a kid who was misbehaving behind the bookcase and make them stand there for the rest of the class.
Yep. This actually happened.
One kid — who shall remain nameless — stuck his arms and legs through the shelves and turned the bookshelves over on the rest of the classroom.
Come to think of it — that was the last time I saw her use that method.
