Kalee's First Day As A Teacher

I want to tell you if you have never read Martini Mom, you must! She has some of THE funniest stories of her life as a kindegarten teacher. I love this woman and she needs another follower and commenter like a hole in the head, but whatever. (bitch) Anyway, I wanted to tell you what happened to Kalee yesterday on her first day substituting and try to get 189 comments like MM does.

My daughter Kalee, graduated with her elementary education degree in May '08. She subbed yesterday for a special ed class in town. I called her yesterday to check on her and see how her day went.
me: "How did it go?"
Kalee: "It was fine."
M: "Just Fine?"
K: "Yeah. It makes me glad to know there are worse behaved kids than Grayson."
M: Heh heh "What happened?"
K: " We have a precious little girl with Down's syndrome in there that is a little toot. I told her to sit down while we passed out snacks and she said, 'Puck you' to me.
M: "What?!"
K: " Yeah, I looked over at the aide and was like, 'Did she just say what I think she said?" and she just slowly nodded her head finding no amusement in it."
M: "OMG! What did you do?"
K: " I just sat her down and gave her a puzzle with animals on it to bide me time to get the snacks passed out and to get her mind on something else."
M: "Well that was smart."
K: " No, not really. She just said, 'Puck you, duck. Puck you, dog. Puck you, cat, the whole time she put it together. It didn't work. And it was a 10 piece puzzle."

I would have subbed for free for that!!!

Wow. To my great shame, I know that I have dropped the F bomb in front of my children, I hope they don't pick up on it as this child obviously did.

Ginger said...

That's a cute story. She should start a journal and write in it about each day she subs...it will give her some laughs later on.
Years ago I was a teachers aide in a 3rd grade class. I decided then, they don't pay teachers enough money!!!

Found your site from "Ritch in Love!"

Love the story of your Daughter's day! What a hoot!

Colleen said...

Oh my goodness, that is too funny!! Subbing can be a trip and when you leave you are soooo glad you do not have them everyday.
I used to teach in the DFW (after subbing for 2 years because I could not find a job--damn coaches) and 1 year I had a kid in a wheelchair. At least 2 days a week he would come in and I would ask if he was having a good day. He would respond with a hearty "f... you", flash both hands, and roll out. Usually in the first 5 minutes. AWESOME!

Marrdy said...

Oh my goodness. Your poor daughter. The world of a teacher.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

LOL that's going to be my new phrase

"puck you!"

"you pucking puckener!"

Paige said...

That is awesome--nothing that funny ever happened to me when I was subbing---just scary stuff.
