Sunday Writing Prompt – Teachers

This week Michael’s asking us to write about teachers.

It’s funny how it’s nearly always my biology teacher that sticks in my mind when it comes down to my school days. I wrote about her and her coloured rinses a few days ago, and I’ve also mentioned her wearing a live stick insect for a brooch!

Dad found a huge moth in the loft and I took it to school in a box padded out with cotton wool and air holes in the lid.
It was after the slow worm incident which is why I took it in. She put the fear of god up everyone, so there was no way I’d have done it otherwise!
I knocked on the staff room door, and asked politely if she was there.
She didn’t look too pleased to see me, but I told her what Dad had found and asked if she’d know what it was.
I honestly thought she was going to have an orgasm on the spot (not that I would have understood at the time, but it’s a good way to describe her now), she was SO excited, especially as it appeared to have laid eggs in the cotton wool.
Proved she was human anyway.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It was always a revelation wasn’t it to see a teacher smile, when 90% of the time they scowled at you. When I started teaching I was told it was a good practice for the first term at least, to not smile at any child. I think I lasted halfway through the first day.

  2. I thought some of my teachers were aliens 😁
