1. I drive a Toyota pickup.
2. Yeah, I think I would be a teacher. I wanted to be a teacher because of the schedule. Having summers off is the coolest thing in the world.
3. I'll probably still be teaching at the same school... More than likely, I'll be teaching the kids of my current students.

I have an interesting story about a Club Carwash I had to supervise this morning, but I'm about to do my Fantasy Football draft. I'll try to post the story here later tonight.

OK, so here's the story I promised. I am the advisor for one of the many clubs on campus. This weekend, we decided to have a carwash to raise funds for our club. Most of the people who came to our carwash gave between $5 and $10 to wash their cars, vans, trucks, etc. Then, this dude shows up in a big rig and asks if we can wash it for him. I'm inclined to tell the kids no, but our club president decides that she thinks it would be fun. So, the kids spend like 30 minutes working on this guy's big rig. Meanwhile, he's walking around with a camera taking pictures of the girls as they wash his car. It seems a bit freaky to me, but the kids are eating it up and posing for the guy's pictures. Finally, after 10 kids spent the better part of 30 minutes on the guy's big rig, he decides to donate a measly $5 to our club fund. What a lame-ass, cheapskate!

Do you actually check whether or not the essay is plagarised, or can you just tell?

Secondly, do you ever play any of the popular card games like Magic or Yugi?

That gave me SUCH a WRONG mental image. Play....Yugi.... XD (In case you were wondering, the image was a guy in a pimp suit bitchslapping the little guy with spiky hair from the anime XD)

Anyway, have you ever accused a student of cheating, only to later discover that you were wrong?

I can spot plagarized papers quite well. Last year, I busted 12 students on final projects and gave them zeroes. It lowered their quarter grades by one full letter grade. I check online with surprising accuracy.

I don't play any card games, but I do enjoy a good strategy RPG.

Nope. I only make an accusation if I'm 100% sure I'm correct. I actually let some kids slide last year because I wasn't able to find proof of cheating.

I don't take it personally. I do, however, fail any paper that has been copied. I usually check papers by using Google or Turn It In .

You ever suspend or expel a student? For what?

Is the procedure to expel a student annoying, because some teachers in my school avoided suspending kids because they claimed it would take up too much of their time.

I’m surprised no one asked what teachers talk about in the teachers lounge, I thought that question was some sort of cliche. Though anyone who has a job would know the answer to that question, its not so hard.

I've suspended a few kids. In my school district, a teacher can suspend a kid for 2 days for any reason they want. The school will back the teacher up 100% on the issue. It's kind of nice to know that I have that power if I need it. Generally, I only use suspension as a last resort. To expel a kid is a different story completely. It takes a hearing before the school board and a ton of paperwork and stuff like that. It can be a real pain in the ass.

1. Do you grade hard?

2. Do you believe Wyoming exists?

3. Is parking terrible at your school?

4. Is your school overcrowded

5. Do you think two lunch periods is acceptable?

1. I don't grade that hard. My class is easy to pass if you attend every day and complete all of your assignments.

2. Isn't Wyoming somewhere between Narnia and Never-never Land?

3. Parking is OK. I usually see empty parking spots in the parking lot throughout the day.

4. Personally, I don't really care for the two lunch period thing. My school uses two lunch periods, and I don't like trying to teach while kids are walking around outside making noise and stuff like that. Plus, it encourages kids to cut and take two lunches.

More like a collapsed star if you ask me. At least there's stuff in Narnia and Never-Never Land.

Also, do you eat from the cafeteria or bring your own lunch?

I eat in the teacher's cafeteria. I'm too lazy to make a lunch every day, so I pay for the crappy school food.

1. I wish. That would involve going back to college for my masters, and I'm too frickin lazy for that.
4. Quality
5. Yes, no, and all bad.
