    My daughter sent this to me for some laughs. The truth is, It’s all true!

    My daughter just sent these to me with the comment….”these are all true”.
    She’s a first year teacher (HS Mathmatics). I can’t tell you how many times she’s called to regale me with the stories of “waiting for the class to be quiet” or “how many times she has to explain something”. But in the end, she always tells me how much she loves teaching & how much she loves her students. It makes my heart sing.

    This awesome! Thank you for the chuckles, because it is all so true. My husband sent it to me after listening to me whine for an hour last night. Will share this with other teachers who need a little lift in the last 5 weeks of school.
