Things I never thought I would say in a classroom….

What is the craziest thing you have said in a classroom? Mine is definitely GET OUT OF THAT DISPLAY CASE! I mean, really. My next comment was something along the lines of I CAN’T BELIEVE I JUST SAID THAT! They definitely did not warn me about this in teacher school. You may be asking yourself how is it that this well-educated, savvy woman didn’t notice someone CLIMBING INTO THE DISPLAY CASE! Oh…let me warn you….I use CAPITAL LETTERS…..and…….lots of periods…a lot. I’m sure it can be annoying, but it’s how I talk as well. At any rate, I think I was tag-teamed.  Or had a secret entrepreneur as a student who saw an opportunity to start a new career as a display-case-enterer. And, in my self-defense, the door to enter (climb) into this display case was next to this enterprising student’s seat.  I made sure that the school put a lock on it after this. 

I guess the point I’m trying to make is that we have all said bizarre things we would never have dreamt of saying at the beginning of our careers. I love my job and burst out laughing as soon as I yelled out that I couldn’t believe that sentence came out of my mouth. So what is the craziest thing you have said?
