Surviving Middle School

Ms. M., the teacher in the classroom next to mine has, by her own admission, a quirky sense of humor. Recently she took a personal day to go to the funeral of a friend who had died after a long illness.

“How’s everything?” the principal asked Ms. M, when she returned to school the day after the funeral.

“Well, my friend’s still dead, if that’s what you mean,” Ms. M said.

It takes a weird sense of humor to survive—and thrive—in middle school.

    Your friend Ms. M, by the way, is my new hero.

  3. As a former Middle School teacher … I get this … totally 😉
    Love your delightful froggy photo today and the Ruby Bridge in the post before this one. My Ruby Tuesday is at Small Reflections but I seem to be logged into my WP account and can’t change the link easily. Such is life!
    Hugs and blessings,

  4. Yes you need the humor to survive to be a teacher now a days. MB
