No math today; it's too hard! Said no teacher ever! Can you imagine your teacher saying this or suggesting you keep your gum and not to forget to stick it under the desk? In this comical look at all the things a teacher is never likely to say, kids, parents, and educators alike will laugh out loud at what might happen if the school day was turned upside down. While your teacher will never encourage you to paint on your desk or copy your neighbor's paper, kids know they can always count on the teacher to make learning fun. So even if things may not always got as planned, structure and boundaries create a safe space, and one thing is always for sure—a teacher will always miss her students at the end of the day.
