THE GARDENER WHO BECAME PRESIDENT

March 10, 2006 1 min read

Newoldschoolteacher vents after a bad day:

My one class … who never do their homework all just bombed a quiz today. A couple of them--ones who do work and/or listen in class--did fine. The rest BOMBED. One of them said that Abraham Lincoln, before he was a politician, was a MAILMAN. Someone else said a gardener. … They make me feel completely incompetent. They are OUT of control. Mainly there are 3 instigators, and the rest are happy to follow along. …

Parts of her post (including the title) aren’t exactly what you’d call—well—nice. But then, we’re fairly confident she’s not the only teacher out there who’s had a day like that.

(Oh, Snap.)
