    Question Did you have an aggresive or violent teacher?

    Well did you? I did, in fact more than one. The fella that does stick in my mind the most, although you must understand that with the march of time things have become a little hazy, was our TD (technical drawing) teacher. A man of limited words and even less charisma who would stalk the...

    OK, he only had a trial with Southend. But he was in my year at SHSB. His old man was my French teacher.

    A Woman's Week At The Gym

    Dear Diary, For my birthday this year, my daughter (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since being a high school cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I...

    Expecting a fair bit of banter with this.... however, here goes! As many of you know, I work in Chelmsford (a Shrimper in minor-exile!). My school is in the north part of town Melbourne/Broomfield kind of area. The missus moved in last year and things are all going well. She desperately wanted...

    That job interview...

    Didnt get the job I went for today. Was based on a points scoring system for the interview. Lesson I took went really well, no problems at all, but I got beat on the interview (even though we had the same points) by a primary teacher who claimed to not want to teach Year 10 or 11 and she's got...

    'The Banter's Not Bad Either'

    I'm pretty sure that the nauseating advertisement with the smug Arsenal supporting pupil mocking his the Spurs loving teacher has been discussed before, it may even have been me who brought it up. The seminal news irony site 'The Daily Mash' has dismantled this tripe better than I ever could...

    Probably been done before, but.... :D A Primary Teacher explains to her class that she is a Liverpool fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they too are Liverpool fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl. The teacher looks at the girl with surprise...

    Now, is it really worth it to be a teacher?

    With what was posted a couple weeks ago about the government bringing in guidelines about the way teachers act outside of school (Yeah, bollocks), the GTC (General Teaching Council) now want teachers to be sacked if they are caught out pubbing or clubbing it during their free time. Looks like...

    Joke time

    A history teacher asks a class full of kids "What was Churchill famous for?" A kid at the back shouts out "He was the last f**king white man to be called Winston!" A bride on her wedding night says to her husband "I must confess darling, I was a hooker!". He says "That's alright, dear. Your...

    On the way back from Glasgow today i was listening to Gaunty on Radio 5 and amongst some of the "shock Jock" stories he was discussing was the one about a Teacher who might be put on the sex offenders register because he has had sex with a 16 year old student at the school he teaches at. The...

    Faith Schools

    Apparently there is to be a new report out on Monday trying to persuade Ed Balls to get rid of faith schools (including Catholic, CoE as well as Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and even Greek Orthodox and Seventh Day Adventist). BBC Radio Essex have asked me to briefly speak on their Sunday morning show...

    Worst school lie.

    Now that school's nearly upon the young people again (seems ages ago and i'm only 19), i've just randomly been thinking what the worst lie i've ever told to get out of trouble for not doing my homework or being late is. So time to share your excuses or ones you've had from students (if you're a...

    British Sign Language

    My wife is a teacher and she is learning BSL as part of her job as a languages teacher, and the fact that her school is the local Hearing Impaired Unit for the area. Anyway, as an act of solidarity I'm learning with her and would just like to say: Sorry for any offence and I shall...
