nyc hs kids should get smartass credits


from one of my two saintly teaching fellow friends, tackling nyc teens with tough love and a sense of humor:

 The other day, one of my favorite hooligans shared with me his plan to get back at security officers on the last day of school.

Here is genius at work…

“Miss- You have to hear my plan.
On the last day of school I’m gonna smuggle in three live chickens.
I will label them 1, 2 and 4.
Security will spend the whole fu^&ing day looking for chicken number 3.”

Now if only this mastermind would attend class every now and again, we’d all have cause to be hopeful for the future.

    I told Mr. Math this story. His response: “that’s treeeeemendous.” Did I mention that he is a teacher? And single? And kind of charming, in a very geeky kind of way? And loves sports?

    No pressure. Not really…

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


Upon common theatres, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actors than their own approbation. But upon the stage of life, while conscience claps, let the world hiss! On the contrary if conscience disapproves, the loudest applauses of the world are of little value - john adams

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”
