that's "encouraging"


Anybody who is a teacher will likely tell you it should actually read week-ends "off." As in off except for all the grading and prepping you'll be doing. Sounds "great!"

I worry about any educational organization that hasn't figured out the correct use of apostrophes. But, hell, they're "only" looking for science teachers.

Virginia, perhaps it's "science" teachers.

Virginia, I was just going to comment on the same thing. :)

This is the funniest blog I've come across in a while. It literally made me laugh out loud. And I'm not using that figuratively.

toep,
I think it's more likely science "teachers."

Okay, I'm "over" the apostrophe. Now I'm puzzling about the man peeking from behind the tree. Is he a science teacher? Why is he hiding? He looks like a caricature of a burglar minus the black eye mask.

Virginia, I think you're onto something. Is science teacher code for burglar? A "great" career?

Fanboy Wife said...

It's truth in advertising. Being a teacher is "great." I hear they make "a lot" of money.

You won't make ends meet on a science teacher's salary. That's why this one's also a burglar.

toep said...

and if he knows some "tricks" like MacGyver he'd be good at it

And what's with the possessive on holiday's? Does the Holiday have bug spray? Because a "teacher" would know how make holiday plural, if s/he got more than one as paid leave.
