Notes for Pupils

As from the beginning of term
Talking
Sniggering
Chatting
And loud breathing will be banned

As will:
Scribbling notes
Inappropriate use of imagination
Smug expressions
Knowing looks
Sign Language
Thinking you know it all
Thinking
Not being amused by your teacher’s jokes
Chewing
Looking as if you're chewing
Redesigning your uniform
To reflect a possible personality
Dreaming about being someone else
Dreaming about being somewhere else
Students

The following will be aloud in moderation:

Intelligence may be displayed
as long as not accompanied by
anything of a rebellious nature
such as questions

The offensive and probing nature of questions
must always be considered, but if in doubt don't
discuss it among yourselves. (see chatting)

It is worth noting that teachers with a straight
mouth are usually struggling to control the urge to kill

Take this as a warning and even if you don't know what you've done
Stop doing it now

You're getting ready for a new semester aren't you? I've already restarted my home students but the theater of the preternaturally absurd doesn't start until the nineteenth. Can't wait!

Sue, I love this. The other day I was on a boring bus ride with only my little notebook to entertain me so I made a poem out of the rules I saw posted. You, Amie and I must be on the same wavelength.

No Russel, we're back to that theater already, I must admit I have a difficult time keeping a straight face sometimes

Glad you enjoyed it Nicole

Absolutley CJ, well they'd have more chance of getting the kids attention if it were

Please post it Patry if you haven't as you can tell I get a bit hung up on the amusement factor of red tape

Pins you are very naughty and I will be sending you a detention, don't forget to house train it or it will make your carpets smelly.

Nasra I know what you mean, I'd love the freedom just to study without having to fit work around it.

Perfect!!! Would you mind if I shared this with my collegues? This is a wonderful satire on school life. You sound like a great teacher? What grade do you teach?
