An American Sign Language teacher gives his or her students an assignment that, on paper, isn’t all that easy. Doing a word search using the characters you’re familiar with isn’t all that hard at all – it’s a good way to waste time, but it’s not really HARD. If you have to get the proper hand motions and formations in your head before doing so, it becomes a whole heck of a lot tougher.
We’re even told by people in the know that some of the signals on the page are backward, in that you might see them from your perspective as the signer or the onlooker’s perspective. And those are some long words, too. You aren’t getting away with little things like “cat” or “man.” No, you have to look for words like “referendum.”
Getting the Seal of Approval
The goal of a teacher is to have your students succeed, and there are few better indications that a student is succeeding – in class, at least – than acing a test. If a student aces a test, they should get a reward! For many, getting a hundred percent on a test is a pretty big reward on its own, but they could always have a little extra, right?
How about a stamp of the teacher’s face for the students that do really well? That should do it. That way, you know that you’ve made the teacher happy. You can go home and show your parents the picture of the teacher on your test with pride, knowing that only the students who got a really good grade will be able to do so.
The Leg Bone’s Connected to the Bathroom Door
Try and figure out what kind of teacher would use a real human leg bone as a bathroom pass. Just go ahead and try to figure that one out. No, it wasn’t a Shakespeare teacher. Is it truly a real leg bone, or is it just a bit of plastic that is made up to look like part of the body?
Only the teacher will ever know for sure, and we’re going to guess that the teacher isn’t going to be telling any of those secrets. The police might still be on the hunt. We encourage all teachers to have bathroom passes that are related to their fields of study. Though the biology teachers might have a hard time picking something that works well.
I Deserve it For Teaching for So Long
Some teachers will hang up things in their classrooms in order to show off why they’re allowed to teach. It might be diplomas from fancy universities, it might be awards for...math, or science, or something like that. Maybe they got to put on a play that gives them more credence teaching literature or something like that.
If there’s a teacher that is old enough, he might staple his first senior discount cup to the wall. Maybe to prove that he’s old enough? We don’t know the reason exactly, but that’s what this teacher did. Maybe he just wanted to prove that he got Taco Bell after the age of fifty-five and survived. That might deserve a medal all on its own. Don’t mess with this teacher, students, or you’ll feel the energy of someone who survived the bell.
Christmas trees are a joy (we recommend putting them up in August for the full effect). Teachers have fun decorating them with things from their chosen subjects. Bookmarks or calculators or...what would a language teacher use? Stuff from the language they teach? That seems like the best option. A chemistry teacher has a better way to do it.
Make a ridiculous tree of stands and clamps that is going to give a real chemist a conniption (the clamps extend farther than the stand! Do you WANT a huge mess?!) And then fill up the clamps with beakers full of, we’re going to assume, incredibly dangerous chemicals and not just colored water. Top with a simple little angel, and you have a holiday display that is going to get a whole lot of likes on social media.
