This just screams “Contest.” The picture below is a list of rules for teachers in the first school in San Diego, circa 1872, exactly 100 years before my birthyear! I took this picture the other day and I haven’t stopped laughing!
So, the contest, staying consistent with the current list you can read below I’d like some more rules that you’d like to add. The best additional rules will be listed as “in the running” and then after a couple days I’ll crown the Best Addition King or Queen! As always, please keep them clean!
If your comment doesn’t appear right away, no worries, I may need to approve you if you haven’t commented ever before or in the last few weeks. Have fun!
Note: One of the best things about this, we discovered that the original teacher served for 1-year at the school, then married the school board President? Hmmm?
********* In The Running **********
9. All teachers must be able to correctly define, spell, and use properly in a sentence the words nib, whittle, and scuttle. ~Calia
Any teacher who smiles at a child shall remain in isolation until a scowl returns. ~Jen
“Any teacher who actually dies physically, is required to tell somebody verbally, so the issue can be dealt with promptly.” ~Jan
9. Any teacher found to be a Confederate sympathizer will be tarred, feathered and sent to the new state of West Virginia indefinitely. ~Marc
Any teacher who stutters or mumbles while speaking will be sentenced to no less than three hours of cleaning up cattle manure. ~Richard Judd
ALL teachers who enter the evil Silicon Valley will be required to pay the penitence penalty of one apple. ~Joe Monto
If you balk at the first 8 rules the other 1864 rules will be applied more harshly. ~Aaron
************ The Winners*************
These were great, I honestly had a very tough time deciding… Monto’s was very prophetic, Aaron’s may have been the most unique/clever, but Jan and Jen get the prizes (it’s a tie!)… I’ve got a “Live and Love Loudly” (theme for the spring retreat for YMV’s) t-shirt for each of you as the prize! I’ll arrange getting these to you.
