The Captain’s 1 stop summer slam

by admin on July 2nd, 2004

I was called in today to be a substitute for summer school. The kids are basically the 9th grade versions of what I deal with on a daily basis during the year. It’s proving to be pretty interesting. I can honestly say I didn’t think the kids I had could get much lower on the maturity scale, but I was wrong.

These kids have little immature groups, and call each other names like every 15 seconds. They go bonkers for trying to write stupid things on the dry erase board. I’ve had to erase their little saying like 15 times in the first hour. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be seeing 99% of these kids next year at some point.

One thing I dislike about being a substitute are the lines like;

iBut Mr. F let’s us do this… .i or iMr F said it was ok today if we did this, since it was Friday.i

I just tell them straight up iI’m not Mr. F, and I don’t give a rat’s ass what he said you could, or couldn’t do, he ain’t here… you’re all mine today.i

One thing I can say about spending 4 years at the continuation school is that it’s prepared me for this type of kid. These kids aren’t even a little bit intimidating. They’re trying to get away with stuff, and I catch them all the time. I think by the end of the day I’ll own them.
