You'd have to be familiar with the school to understand. It's really not a strict school, especially when it comes to things like cursing. Besides, virtually every kid in the school has called her a cunt at one stage or another. It's not considered that big a deal. When I was in 4th year they just stopped disciplining students in my year because suspending them was doing absolutely no good. It's a rough school in a rough part of Dublin. Colaiste Dhulaigh is the name of the school. Look it up. I'm sure you'll find stories that will show you that name calling is the tip of the iceberg.

The funniest thing is that when I went there as a student, she was my Irish teacher. Now, granted, I rarely went to that class because I'm a fluent Irish speaker so it's a bit pointless, but I had her for 3 years and she didn't recognise me. We laughed it off later when she was reminded of who I was and she gave the necessary speech on what is and isn't acceptable but it wasn't that serious an issue that I'd need to be escorted off the premises, as you put it. I was asked back this year and up until only a few weeks ago I was going to do it but things have come up which means I won't have time. Maybe next year though.



Wow that is really sad!!If the head is being shown that amount of disrespect then teaching staff and the pupils have no chance! sad


You'd think that and conventional wisdom would back you up but since the school got less strict with that kind of thing, especially with the older students (16-18) there was a massive improvement in overall behaviour. When I went there as a student it was not uncommon to have the police show up every once in a while for one reason or another. These days, it's a lot calmer. There's the odd incident, I even had one of my drama students call me a "fucking bimbo" because I got his name wrong, but it depends on how you deal with it. You can't punish these kids because it has no effect. You're better off just laughing it off or, what worked for me, giving a little back in a joking kind of way. The teacher I was helping out gave me a bit of advice early on to just treat the kids as equals, rather than try to appear as an authority figure. That method obviously doesn't work all the time but with those kinds of kids, the kind that associate authority with police, it really does. I actually really enjoyed the majority of my time teaching there.

Most embarrassing moment for me in recent times would have to be last year in school. Bit of background first. As some of you may or may not know, I worked as an actress and singer when I left school. Since having my daughter 4 years ago, I don't do much acting anymore because it's too time consuming and I'd rather be home with my child and luckily, I can afford to do so. But last year, my former secondary school (high school, I suppose, if you're American) drama teacher asked if I'd help her out and teach her class with her to share my experience. It's like 3 days a week so I thought, why not. Now, keep in mind these kids are around 15 years old and I'm 26 so there's a bit of an age gap. So, on my way in on my first day, the school principal sees me in the corridor and she stops me. I assumed she was going to say hello or thank me for helping out or something. But nope. She starts giving out to me and demands I go home and change into my uniform. She thinks I'm a student! And no matter how much I tell her I'm a teacher, she doesn't believe me. It gets pretty heated and I end up saying some very unkind things to her before the drama teacher shows up to tell the principal that I am, indeed, a teacher there. She's very apologetic and all the rest of it and I suppose I had to apologise for telling her I'd "ram that staple gun into your face, you stupid cunt". But that's not the embarrassing part. The embarrassment came when I went into class and realised that all my students had just heard the principal mistake me for a child and me threaten to kill her for it. Now, that's how you make a good first impression!

I'm a teacher in the UK, I can't believe you told the head she was a cunt and didn't get escorted off the premises. Especially as you were going to interact with children!!!!



Hopefully Emma told her she was "acting"!



Nah, I'm not that good an actress smile

Don't feel bad about that.

I pooped my pants in 1rst grade too, even though I did ask the teacher.

The bitch refused to let me go.

That indeed sux.

I hated five-minute breaks between a random class and a PE class cause I had to go downstairs for the sportswear and then get dressed. No time for bathroom and the teacher would bitch about breaks.

We usually weren't allowed to drink in classes either which was annoying if it was 30+ °C outside.

hah, i once had to point out to a woman that her skirt was unzipped at the back while we were walking onto our university campus. i think i was almost as embarrassed as she was. there's no nice way to say that to someone!

We (us men, anyway) have probably at least once asked a woman who wasn't pregnant when her baby was due.

I did it once that I can remember and man, I wanted to crawl under a rock! That must have been about 25 years ago but since then, I have never asked that question without being told first she was pregnant!

Yeah I do kind of get what you mean, don't sweat on the small stuff,

It's really tough you have to build relationships every kid is different.

Glad you have been trying to give back and help out.

Anyway enough threadjacking from me
lol

Mine is being in Home Depot with husband and telling him rather loudly that I was going to go get a spade only to turn around and see an African Amercian couple right there. Yep, coughed and cleared my throat, made an attempt at groveling and the lady laughed and said, "We know what you meant"

Hubby and the couple were still laughing as I walked away. I wouldn't even go back to where he was either. I waited for him out by the car.

I had Another embarrasing moment today at the Dixon's hamburger diner.I went inside to place a order.this was about 30 minutes after I woke up so that will be my excuse. so anyway the waitress asked me what I wanted.I replied to her that I needed "2 Furburgers" to go. Of course I meant to say flower burgers.
