Who is in charge here?

 

Boys. What can be said about boys?  So much, a lot. 

As a teacher I enjoyed teaching boys. Cut it out. I am looking at you. And, classroom life would resume.  But girls

A classroom of girls is much like a room full of cats. Things go bad fast when Lisa has a "dispute" with Becky, and then explosions



Another time I will highlight the females of the same age.  Should be interesting.

    1. In the classroom, I was in charge. Now I am not.
      These boys must have been a fun addition to any classroom.

  2. A boy I went to school with would sit and read a comic book hidden inside his schoolbook. He was no problem for the teacher because he wasn't paying attention to her.

  4. Haha I didn't understand a word he said! Apart from "What else".

    When I did my teaching practice to train as an art teacher I was placed in an all boys school.

  6. Love the videos. Amazing someone thinks to catch them. I always say, I should have got that for the records. LOL I cannot imagine handling a class. Teachers definitely have my respect. I am sure there are some AMAZING stories to be told.
    Love ya

    1. Good choice. Takes a lot of talent and intelligence.

  8. I worked for many years in a school for children with physical and learning disabilities. Part of my job was teaching some of the children to drive electric wheelchairs and this is what I learned. The hardest to teach were the cute, loveable little ones; they had learned a strategy for getting exactly what they wanted by smiling and looking sweet till somebody gave them exactly what they wanted - it was very hard to resist and even when I knew what they were doing I still used to fall for it. What I liked best was when the physiotherapists asked me if a very difficult and mischievous child might be able to learn to drive. "Certainly!" I could reply with confidence; despite their intellectual challenges they soon realised the advantage of being able to go places under their own steam and get up to all sorts of pranks!

  9. We have one girl this year... that changes the whole dynamic. She definitely likes to stir the pot. I don't dislike her but she gives me challenges daily (or at least on the days she isn't in detention). ;)

    1. Ah, I see. Yes, 1 girl in a classroom of boys would really stir the pot.

  10. I live with a room full of hissing cats! Loved seeing the little boys. They are so sweet at that age. Then they start to grow!

    1. I still would rather deal with a 14 year old boy, than a 14 yr old girl. Hormones suck.

  11. They are such fun. Challenging, but fun.

  12. Yes, it doesn't take much more than stepping in to break up a boy fight, but NOBODY wants to get in the middle of a girl fight. You'll get your eyes scratched out, and they won't stop until they're good and ready.

    1. You have been there, too. I have wondered if spray water to cool them down.

  13. As a mother of 4 boys now grown men I will agree that they are easier than girls..that comes from watching those boys now grown men, raise their own girls! I have 9 grands and 6 are girls. God knew me better so he sent me all boys and let me stand back and watch others raise those girls! That being said, I'm a girl and I was a dream to raise! Ha! That video was so cute. I love his accent. Plus talking with his hands and wiping his face on his shirt..classic boy!
