The cry of the Texas Revolution was, “Remember the Alamo!” And rightly so! Probably. We don’t actually remember why. One teacher wanted to make sure that nobody in his or her class forgot about this big event in the history of Texas and the United States in this classroom, no sir. No ma’am.
Nobody is going to forget that while Texas lost the battle of the Alamo, it would eventually win the war and become part of the great United States of America. Or that this famous battle included the deaths of legendary folk heroes Davy Crockett and James Bowie.
You Know You're in Trouble
Keep your middle name close – it gives others power over you. Sadly, there is nothing you can do to keep it from your parents, who gave it to you in the first place. One teacher took that idea to a logical-mathematical conclusion. Pi, you see, does not end.
It starts with the classic 3.14 and then just keeps going and going and going, forever and ever – at least, that is the theory. We guess it is possible it could end, though unlikely. Now the answer remains, who are Pi's parents? E and I? Radius and circumference? The possibilities are endless.
The amount that teachers get paid is often thought to be a much lower number than it should be. One teacher (math teacher? That's a big possibility) worked the numbers to figure out how much teachers would be getting paid if they earned as much as babysitters.
Of course, any economist will tell you it wouldn't just work like that unless inflation hit pretty hard and money became worth a lot less. Oh, hey, look at that. Sadly, supply and demand is still a thing, no matter how much math you do, so we don't think this will ever happen.
Never Miss a Chance for a Good Joke
Some teachers take their personal appearance quite seriously. Some take it a little too seriously, and this guy might fall into that latter category. He has got a legendary set of chops, but he shaved them down for March fourteenth – pi day.
Some blessed men out there can regrow facial hair in a snap, and it looks like this guy doesn't have much of a problem. Although this picture was likely taken during the morning, you can already see some scruff growing. The little curves of the pi sign are a little tough to shave in, but it's not bad.
Papers on My Desk by Monday
Even teachers have to have a day off once in a while (not counting Summer, for some reason). Sick days, some well-earned vacation, doctor's appointments, etc. Usually, that means the teachers get a substitute, and they can just sit back and watch an episode of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” or something like that.
But in this class, the kids don't get a day off even when the teacher isn't there – she's always watching, always looking over their shoulders. Turn in your homework, put those phones away, and pay attention. They didn't even get a substitute teacher to cover for them. How rude!
