Saturday 22nd April 2006
D-day for students of St Joseph's School Kuching. A much dreaded day for the students cos they have to bring their "beloved" parents to see their form- teachers to get an oral report on their behaviours, attitudes for the last four months .



As teachers we are forewarned that we shud give more positive remarks on the child , so the following are some of the typical conversation overheard that morning:

Teachers to parents :

1. Your son enjoyed talking in class while the teacher is teaching
( meaning-- he is soooooooooo talkative in class)
2. Your son is smart so he will be busy doing his own things while the teacher is teaching
( meaning -- he is never paying attention in class)

3. Your son is doing his homework but cannot finish in time
( meaning -- he never finishes his homework)

4. Your son is a nature lover
( meaning - he is always looking outside the class while I am teaching)

5. Your son is constantly surpervised by the teachers
( meaning - the teachers is having a super hard time to baby-sit and look after yo child)

6. You have a super active child
( meaning -- he can never sit still in class, always want to go to toilet just to have a walk during lessons , disturbing his friends etc etc.....)

7. Your son can still achieve better results than this
( meaning his result is very rotten, as parents u better start monitoring him , guiding him..motivate him......)

8. Your son attire in school can be further improved on
( meaning - his shirt is not tucked in , not wearing name tags, spikey hairs like the trojan man in the detergent advertisement

9. Your son is not putting his 100% effort into his study
( meaning he is putting in zero effort... meaning he is not studying for his exam at all...........)

10. Your son is at the moment undergoing puberty and growing up
( meaning - he is more interested in the girls opposite the school than the teachers' teaching ( there is a all girl school opposite our school)... puttting on the bau-tikus- mati aka dead rat smell perfume at the last period just before the last bell... his school bag full of toiletries like hair gel, hair wax, etc etc )

p/s BTW. ours is a all boys school




Parents to teachers :

1. Have u finished talking about my son ?
( #??##/????@#$%#@$#)

2. At home teacher, i also cannot control him
( so how I as teacher with 45+ students control him when u... 1 to 1 already cannot????)

3. My son didnt tell me he has exam
( for goodness sake there is a school dairy... do check for his exam date hor...)

4. My son just wont listen to me
( OMG!!! you are the parents if they wont listen to u , will they listen to us teachers ???)

But of cos they are very nice parents who are caring about their sons, appreciating the teachers' effort lar.. but it is this small minority mentioned above that makes u irritated tho.....)

haiyor...... life as teachers..........

I heard that yesterday there was one parent who got so angry with the son's report that he tore up his report card in front of the teacher, kicked the classroom door, and showing off his tantrums ALAMAK... whose faults is that????





As the sayings goes... all teachers go to heaven... so still smiling after a hard day's work ....
Blessed are the Teachers indeed

Teacher Joke 1

If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up" said the sarcastic teacher. After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.
"Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?" enquired the teacher with a sneer.
"Well, actually I don't," said the student, "but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself."


Teacher Joke 2
science test question

The student - not necessarily a well-prepared student - sat in his science classroom staring at a question on the final exam paper.

The question directed: "Give four advantages of breast milk."

What to write? He sighed, and began to scribble whatever came into his head, hoping for the best:

1. No need to boil.

2. Cats can't steal it.

3. Available whenever necessary.

Um. So far so good - maybe. But the exam demanded a four-part answer.

Again, what to write? Once more he sighed. He frowned. He scowled. Then sighed again.

But suddenly, he brightened. He grabbed his pen, and triumphantly he scribbled his definitive answer:

4. Available in attractive containers.



Teacher Joke 3

Ahmad: I spent eight hours over my new spelling book last night.

School Answering Machine

Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all options before making a selection:

To lie about why your child is absent Press 1
To make excuses for why your child did not do their work Press 2
To complain about what we do Press 3
To cuss out staff members Press 4
To ask why you didn't get needed information that was already enclosed in your letter mailed to you Press 5

The Evolution of Teaching

1960s
A peasant sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his selling price. What is the profit?

1970s
A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his selling price i.e. $8. What is the profit?

1980s (new math)
A farmer exchanges a set P of potatoes with M of money. The cardinality of the set M is equal to $10 and each element ofM is worth $1. Draw 10 big dots representing the elements ofM. The setC of production costs is composed of 2 big dots less than the setM. RepresentC as a subset of M and give the answer to the question: What is the cardinality of the set of profits?

1990s
A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His production costs are $8 and his profit is $2. Underline "potatoes" and discuss with your classmates.

2000s
A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His production costs are 0.80 of his revenue. On your calculator graph revenue versus costs. Run the "POTATO" program to determine the profit. Discuss the result with students in your group. Write a brief essay that analyzes this example in the real world of economics

Teacher: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
Class: Cyril!

Teacher: Didn't you promise to behave?
Student: Yes, sir.
Teacher: And didn't I promise to punish you if you didn't?
Student: Yes, sir, but since I broke my promise, you didn't have to keep yours.

Ismaul: Teacher, would you punish me for something I didn't do?
Teacher: Of course not.
Ismail: Good, because I didn't do my homework.

Teacher: Why are you late?
Imran: Because of the sign.
Teacher: What sign?
Imran: The one that says, "School Ahead, Go Slow." That's what I did.


Gary: I don't think I deserve a zero on this test.
Teacher: I agree, but it's the lowest mark I can give you.

Mother: Why did you get such a low mark on that test?
Junior: Because of absence.
Mother: You mean you were absent on the day of the test?
Junior: No, but the kid who sits next to me was.

Sylvia: Dad, can you write in the dark?
Father: I think so. What do you want me to write?
Sylvia: Your name on this report card.

Father: What's that?
Teacher: With grades like these, he couldn't be cheating.

Teacher Joke 10

One day in heaven, the Lord decided He would visit the earth and take a stroll. Walking down the road, He encountered a man who was crying. The Lord asked the man, "Why are you crying, my son?" The man said that he was blind and had never seen a sunset. The Lord touched the man who could then see and was happy.
As the Lord walked further, He met another man crying and asked, "Why are you crying, my son?" The man was born a cripple and was never able to walk. The Lord touched him and he could walk and he was happy.
Farther down the road, the Lord met another man who was crying and asked, "Why are you crying, my son?" The man said, "Lord, I work for the Malaysian school system."
And the Lord sat down and cried with him.
