Fame, shoes and discipline problems- Just another day as a high school teacher

I guess you can say I had my five minutes of fame today. Well, as famous as one can be who teaches 10th grade English… in a rural south Ga school… the last class period of the day.

What, you may say, made me so famous? My shoes! I had NO idea!

So, here is the play-by-play: I was standing in the hallway between classes as I always do. As I took a moment to glance outside, I was accosted by five large male teenagers snapping pictures with their cell phones! I felt like a movie star. I hear them begin chanting ” Oh, Mrs. Davis got on them Tims!”
I had no idea that Timberland boots were so male-teen popular. Not only were they impressed with the fact that I had them , they were also enthralled that I had pink “Tims” .

I have to tell you that this is “that” class. The one that makes me consider early retirement and cause me to doubt my career choice. In this class there is a group of boys who usually instigate and proliferate the problems, and, you guessed it…this is the same group that were snapping pictures of my boots! Needless to say, today’s class was a breeze! Who knew? All I had to do to solve my issues in this difficult class was to wear the right shoes!
