A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Teacher Appreciation Week

Filed under: blogging,children,Family,Humor,Schools,Teaching — avoiceofreason @ 12:03 am

This week was National Teacher Appreciation Week. I actually received a few gestures of thanks, that I wasn’t expecting but am thankful for (particularly the candy bars on Monday). However, I think that my cats must have been reading the letter that I brought home from the PTA because when I woke up today there were messages from them to me.

I was so impressed that I decided to share my cats attempts at haiku in honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week. However, I think they just were trying to rationalize their rancid behavior towards me. My dog, Liesel, sadly can’t write haiku, but she’d express similar sentiments if she could. I guess there is only so much a teacher can do!


Sorry I am mean
to you. It’s just that you smell
like the dog. Sorry.

Sorry I chewed your
important note from the
school. But it was fun.

Thank you for your school-
bag. It’s a nice place to sit.
Sorry for the fur.


Sorry I peed on
your agenda, old boy. I
couldn’t help myself.


Sorry I puked on
your tie. But you left it on
the table. Fair game.

  5. Music has now become the language of people and
    the media is making sure that music reaches everyone uncomplicated.

    First, I’m seriously wired by nature and am not someone who can stop thinking. With websites offering fans a chance to keep up with the latest in the industry, fans have found it easier to listen to the latest numbers without having to spend a lot of effort in locating records.

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
