Creepy? No, Kooky!

Today was my last day of student teaching.

A couple of the students told me today, "you know, when you started here, we thought you'd be kind of scary and mean. Now we know that you're just like one of us!"

Gee, thanks. I think.

Your last day . . . HURRAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

"You know, when you started here, we thought you'd be kind of scary and mean. Now we know that you're just like one of us!"

That's supposed to be the perfect classroom management strategy: start mean and ease up. It's virtually impossible to get a class under control if you start off as Mr. Nice Guy.

Peter Brady's volcano was a nice finishing touch (just like us!).

Well done, Mr. D.!!!

Thanks! The problem with "starting mean" is that the "mean" phase lasts about a day before they see through it.
