I've never been the type of teacher who cares about what name the kids call me. I respond to Miss Campbell, Miss, Mrs Campbell, Mr Campbell, Ms Candle, Mr Camel and Mum. Today was the day to be called every name under the sun. A year 3 student (class bully) called me Mum and tried to cover it up with "nah said hey man". I can't stand the constant "Miss Miss Miss Miss Can't you hear me Miss".
Today after weeks of trying to keep students on task by teaching quality lessons, I reverted to old fashioned bribery!! I don't know why I didn't try it earlier. It's amazing what kids will do for a lollipop or a smiggle rubber. Has anyone else out there noticed how obsessed kids are with anything from smiggle.
Life is Peachy!!
