Why do I bother?

Me: Right everyone, pass me your work. I want to take it to mark it.

Pupil: Why are you taking it to market, sir?

How gotta love the things that come out of their mouths.
Okay, you don't have to...but it is cute. Sometimes.

Kids. You can't beat 'em ...... what a pity!

Ali said...

marking ... are you in for a promotion?

Pluto said...

Don't be daft, Ali. If I got promotion I'd have to do some real work instead of sitting in the prep room drinking tea!

I taught for many years mostly the lower end of the primary range and often wondered why? but the occasional gem was amongst them and then I knew why I had marked all the rubbish.
