You know what I hate? When you get that itch that is halfway between your ear and the back of your throat. It's sort of just beyond the point where you could do anything about it from either direction.

And it just sits there.

I am a teaching assistant/substitute at a local k-12 charter school.

I spend MOST of my time with the middle school students (6-8).

This is quite adventurous.

Here are 5 things I saw happen in the last week(ish).

1. An eighth grader who ran into a wall, punching a four foot hole through the plaster.
2. A boy licking a stick of deodorant.
3. A boy who wanted to show me just how far he could stick a pencil up his nose.
4. A boy who stuck a staple so far into his ear that I couldn't get it back out.
5. The principal body checking the PE teacher in order to win a scooter board race.

Never a dull moment in public education.
