You're not the only teacher having a bad day!

You're not the only teacher having a bad day!

One of the things which has given me the most comfort in my teaching career is hearing teachers swear in the staffroom. It sounds strange but it’s a funny sort of therapy - knowing that someone else is also having a bad day. Sometimes we just need a bit of reassurance that we’re not alone in whatever’s going on in our professional lives. We all have bad days but sometimes it’s easy to think we’re the only ones. This collection of stories, confessions, grievances and all-out ‘fails’ written by an online community of real teachers is a little window into the problems of teachers around the world. Some will make you cringe, some will make you smile. We’re not endorsing, condoning or condemning anything you read here. Some of the actions described could not be described as ‘best practice’ while some seem like the musings of criminal masterminds. Take some comfort and draw your own conclusions...

Doctor Glum: The Miserable Menace with a Magical Drum (Narrative Poem)

Doctor Glum: The Miserable Menace with a Magical Drum (Narrative Poem)

A narrative poem following the nasty Dr Glum as he uses his magical drum to make others unhappy - but will he learn his lesson? This is the story of old Doctor Glum And the magical instrument he taps with his thumb. He’s fat and old with a temper that’s bad, And wears a red army tunic that belonged to his dad. On his head is the hat from an old marching band, Which is covered in dirt and was bought second hand. Bits of spaghetti and old food dangled - From his white beard that was scruffy and tangled. Strapped around his neck (which is as fat as a plum), Is a big red and white marching band drum… But the power the drum holds is something quite great; It’s a shame that the man with the drum’s filled with hate!
